And thanks! For this and the previous email.

But I couldn't wait long enought, and I set my bridge up with brctl.
I need it for this complex story here:
and it has already tired me very much by now (and likely that story,
somewhat Gentoo specific on my part, is not over yet).

Once bridge from iproute2 is in the netifrc documentation, and esp. in
the https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Network_bridge#OpenRC I sure will use
it. I'm not very advanced to be completely at ease even with brctl :-) .

And thanks for adding it to the Wiki.
