I wanted to try KDE 4.7, so I added the KDE ebuild
Then, I linked the package.keywords
Code:
sudo ln /var/lib/layman/kde/Documentation/package.keywords/kde-4.7.keywords /etc/portage/package.keywords/kde.keywords

but the kde 4.7 packages are still masked?

I don't want to use autounmask, cause it makes things messy by unmasking all the *9999 ebuilds, while I only want to install the beta

There is probably a package.mask and maybe a package.use too.

You could as well try "emerge --autounmask kde-meta:4.7".
