thank you, sir!

Code:

there is a "/" where it shouldn't be.

Will this upgrade my current 2.x version of gnome, or install it into a new slot?

It will upgrade your Gnome. There is no way to run both versions in different slots as fr as I now.

Yep they use the same file names for multiple files so no side by side sadly.

# echo "source /var/lib/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/make.conf


This line should preferably be added to the top such that it never overwrites make.conf settings.

# revdep-rebuild


With FEATURES="preserve-libs" we can use the new `emerge @preserved-rebuild`.

Please avoid referring to the old offline unofficial Gentoo Wiki, refer to wiki.gentoo.org instead;
in fact, feel free to add your tutorial there to benefit others, people will often look at the official wiki first.
