13 This is a replacement document for the old Gentoo Handbook. The new Handbook is
14 architecture-specific (well, almost) and therefore the use of the handbook.xml
15 name is obsoleted.

29 <p>
30 The old Gentoo Handbook (the one with all the archictural instructions
31 in it) has been obsoleted in favor of the new, architecture-specific Gentoo
32 Handbook.
33 </p>
34
35 <p>
36 Note though that this architecture-specific aspect is not 100% valid
37 -- the new Handbook still refers to other architectures at some points. This is
38 because the Gentoo Handbook contains <e>lots</e> of information that is valid
39 for all architectures and we don't want to duplicate this information across all
40 versions (due to resource constraints, avoid duplication of efforts, etc.).
41 </p>
42
43 <p>
44 We will try to keep this to a minimum to avoid confusion.

68 The <uri link="draft/handbook-sparc.xml">Gentoo Linux/SPARC Handbook</uri> is
69 not completely finished yet. We are awaiting input from the SPARC developers
70 regarding the partitioning of a SPARC system. If you know how to partition your
71 SPARC system then you can safely use this draft Handbook.
