I've been using Gentoo for 15 years and I still don't know. What does the "e" stand for first in every Gentoo command like e-merge, e-build, e-select, e-query?

Than you. I would never have figured that out. Google doesn't work well when searching for a single letter.

You're absolutely correct. And now you know what my follow-up question is! ;)
