As some of you may already have noticed, a new category has been added
to our portage tree: net-p2p.

If you are a user of the following p2p ebuilds, please read through this

net-misc/agqt (AudioGalaxy)
net-misc/dc-gui (Direct Connect)
net-misc/dctc (Direct Connect)
net-misc/fags (AudioGalaxy)
net-misc/fidelio (HotLine)
net-misc/freenet (Freenet)
net-misc/gift (OpenFT)
net-misc/giftcurs (OpenFT)
net-misc/gnut (Gnutella)
net-misc/gtk-gnutella (Gnutella)
net-misc/gtkhx (HotLine)
net-misc/kift (OpenFT)
net-misc/mutella (Gnutella)
net-misc/openag (AudioGalaxy)
net-misc/qtella (Gnutella)
net-misc/xsat (AudioGalaxy)
media-sound/gnapster (Napster)
media-sound/lopster (Napster)
media-sound/nap (Napster)
media-sound/teknap (Napster)

All these packages have been moved to the new category and will be
removed from the old one sometime this week.

To upgrade follow these easy steps:

# emerge sync --clean

to get the latest portage tree. The --clean option will ensure that
stale ebuilds are being removed from your local tree.

# emerge --pretend unmerge <your_p2p_app>

Without the --pretend option, this will remove your p2p app.

# emerge --pretend net-p2p/<your_p2p_app>

And this will remerge the correct version.

As all future releases of these applications will be made in the new
category this upgrade is recommended.

Happy filesharing.
