Bug #489782 - LibreOffice, not OpenOffice (anymore)

Fix bug #445626 - Add info on swap space and possible sizing
Fix bug #465410 - Slightly misleading sentence in creating partition, thanks to Vladimir for reporting
Fix bug #464780 - Update miscalculation on partition size thanks to Peter Nepokroeff
Fix bug #451596 - Mark ext4 as recommended fs
Part of bug #437338 - Remove acronym YMMV and use a better known sentence (in this case, "your results may vary")
Fix bug #427860 - Use /etc/portage for make.conf and make.profile. Old location (/etc) is still supported, this is a heads up (new default)
Enhancing information on downsides wrt multiple partitions. This hopefully also clears up some of the confusion that is surrounding separate /usr partitions. Yes, it now mentions that an initramfs might be needed in that case. And no, we do not "recommend" a separate /usr partition, nor do we "not recommend" it.
Bug #372427 - Remove mentioning of EVMS (not sure why or how I missed these paragraphs)
Remnant of bug #334167 - Mention mkfs.ext4 in the list of creation commands too
Fix bug #370479 - Introduce partitioning with parted too (at least for x86/amd64) and mention the use case of >2TB
Fix bug #334167 - Mention ext4 in the handbook. Done for alpha, mips, amd64 and x86. Other arches: please verify and comment on the bug. Thanks to Maciej Grela for reporting.
Engrish fixes, bug 253374
Bootable flag needs to be on. We all thought it was a thing of the past... My brand new intel itx motherboard with dual-code atom 330 will not boot HD if flag is not on :-(
As announced on the list (http://archives.gentoo.org/gentoo-doc/msg_e721be404c6a5ae8ce5c5bf02f45381c.xml), assume all arches are using the libata framework, so sd* everywhere. includes updating block device and partition descriptions. also added a new included file for boot config (starting sshd, hdparm, etc). synced up several wayward files, including sparc. also changed/dropped usage of some now useless keys, since everyone's using sd*. lots of intensive, invasive changes. and i never even used sed once.
release time. note that since this is beta1, the release dir and stage/media names have been adjusted accordingly. also, the handbooks are marked with a disclaimer=draft, so once the final is out, that will be removed and the release names adjusted. in the mean time, these are live. the beta is officially released. no, it's not april fools, but it is april 1st. :)
fixing tree type confusion. spank whoever told me to add that ext3 stuff in the first place, and me for blindly adding it. all fixed now; also fixed reiserfs, since it's actually B+, not B*
2007.0 release is here; final changes and new docs
Removing -O dir_index was not clever. It'll have to be removed for 2007.0 though.
dangit, forgot to revbump for the last commit. fixed, sorry.
Reworded reiserfs and ext3 descriptions for bug 153518
Moved chapter abstracts into shared chapters No content change, hence no bump
2006.1 networked docs are in. portage handbook still untouched per separate bugs. thanks to all the hard work, guys. blame me if something is wrong (and please fix quickly) :)
Merged x86 & amd64
