I got this message after python updated:

Code:
* Messages for package dev-lang/python-2.6.4:

 * "bsddb" module is out-of-date and no longer maintained inside dev-lang/python. It has
 * been additionally removed in Python 3. You should use external, still maintained "bsddb3"
 * module provided by dev-python/bsddb3 which supports both Python 2 and Python 3.         
 * It is highly recommended to additionally install Python 3, but without configuring Python wrapper to use Python 3.


I installed the module but Python-3 is masked. Do I unmask it or just leave it alone for now?

I wouldn't install python-3 unless you're sure you need it. From what I hear, it still is generally slower than python 2.6, and a lot of programs don't work with it.

Thanks, I'll leave it off then.
