 OK, here's a news item (actually two, separate for server and non-server
 profiles). Since it's a bit late now, I'll commit this or the improved version
 after discussion here in 6h (21:00 UTC) unless there are severe protests.

 Title: New 13.0 profiles and deprecation of 10.0 profiles

 Content-Type: text/plain
 Posted: 2013-02-10
 Revision: 1
 News-Item-Format: 1.0
 Display-If-Profile: default/linux/alpha/10.0
 Display-If-Profile: default/linux/alpha/10.0/desktop

 We have generated a new set of profiles for Gentoo installation. These are now
 called 13.0 instead of 10.0. Everyone should upgrade as soon as possible (but
 please make sure sys-apps/portage is updated to current stable *before* you
 switch profile).
 This brings (nearly) no user-visible changes. Some new files have been added
 to the profile directories that make it possible for the developers to do more
 fine-grained use flag masking (see PMS-5 for the details), and this formally
 requires a new profile tree with EAPI=5.

 -- the server profile variant (sparing you the headers entirely)

 In the course of this change, the server profiles will be removed; they do
 not exist in the 13.0 tree anymore. You should migrate to the corresponding
 parent profile. This may change the default value of some use-flags. The
 specific setting in server was
   USE=-perl -python snmp truetype xml
 You may want to check the setting of these flags after switching profile, but
 otherwise nothing changes.
