Where to begin

It is shockingly easy to get started, should you choose to. Thanks @drobbins

To convert a system to next-release:

 Do a world update on your system and specifically ensure you have the latest portage and ego installed.
 Add "release = next" to the "[global]" section of /etc/ego.conf
 Run "ego sync"
 Then run "epro build next".

As always, whenever you make changes to your profile, perform a world update. # emerge -DuavN @world
