301When you are emerging a series of packages, Portage can fetch the source files
302for the next package in the list even while it is compiling another package,
303thus shortening compile times. To make use of this capability, add
304"parallel-fetch" to your FEATURES.

314When Portage is run as root, FEATURES="userfetch" will allow Portage to drop
315root privileges while fetching package sources. This is a small security
316improvement.
