:-D.... waht i meant is, there is no single kernel like on suse mandr rh
etc ....
there are many including vanilla etc
gentoo-sources is the latest considered "stable" kernel + some patches and
fixes etc

actually one
you create ebuilds for all version of vserver including the experiemental
stuff. the devel ebuilds get masked.
so people who want to have a stable system install the stable ebuilds, others
install the devel ebuilds.

(ebuilds are stored in a folder, in the portage tree i.e. vserver-sources....)
