About Portage
=============

Portage is a package management system based on ports collections. The
Package Manager Specification Project (PMS) standardises and documents the
behaviour of Portage so that the Portage tree can be used by other package
managers.


Dependencies
============

Python and Bash should be the only hard dependencies. Python 2.6 is the
minimum supported version.
