 So it doesn't make much sense to remove flex and bison from system.

IIRC POSIX mandates vi too, and we don't have that in system.

No, it's optional (User Portability Utilities option, POSIX2_UPE).
ed is required by POSIX, though. ;-)

 That's true. How about having a virtualization project which takes care
 of the common part, the docs and the coordination (if any) and have
 separate herds for larger subprojects?

I have to agree here for the Xen part. One big alias for all packages will 
only jam up everybody's mailbox.
So we keep the existing herds (vmware, xen) and maintain common packages 
such as libvirt under a super-herd. Question is what happens with the 
packages that are not part of any herd yet (such as virtualbox, qemu)?

 Someone can speak to me why this programs aren't in portage tree, cos
 they are a good programs to robotic area? I finded only this packages in
 overlay, but so old. If i wish to put this sources in portage what i
 need to do?

I'm currently working for a robotics research lab and I've seen my
co-workers using these apps lots of times. I'm interesting in this area,
involved in an Humanoid project and familiar with the basics of robotics 
although I have no current experience with the apps.

Please, contact me out of the list and we'll see how can we improve
the robotics support in Gentoo.

Thanks Zhu.
