Interesting one, although its meaning is not that easy to grasp at
first sight :)

I'd like to provide a Gentoo metapackage for Pacemaker (and OpenAIS,
as there's currently no Gentoo metapackage either).

I hope we will be able to collaborate well in the future -- unfortunately
Linux-HA/Heartbeat support wasn't that great on Gentoo until now...

Sounds good. I'm really looking forward into the results of
this new movement :)

I'll let you all know when I have some Gentoo stuff ready :)
