But what is the target group of this profile? It sets only 6 USE flags that are really useless on half of servers (e.g. VPN/mail server). I'd better set only -perl -python there to make servers less dependent on python/perl updaters and decrease rebuilds for servers. Also it's good idea to make them hardened only as hardened works very well for servers. -- Peter.
