I did portage sync update as usual and I tried to update the installation and notice following
Code:
emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy ">=net-misc/tor-0.2"

My first idea was that the package was moved to the different section like it happened for various packages over the years, but I could not find it anywhere and when I wanted to pull old version of the ebuild from the website I noticed that the page that has been there for ages is gone as well https://packages.gentoo.org/packages/net-misc/tor

Was that a hack or deliberate action to remove package without the notice?

lol. I did search for it with "eix net-*/tor", but obviously it did not find it there hence I did not to do eix-update first. Still I would say instead of page on wiki being removed completely as google search still leads to it better would be to create stub there that redirects to new location.

The only reason I knew was that I have been monitoring the packages database, and recalled seeing "tor" listed.

I have no idea whether portage can automatically manage the change, and I see two packages that have dependencies (net-libs/stem and net-misc/arm).

Oh - you might want to have eix-update run automatically after an `emerge --sync`

Code:
#!/bin/sh

# /etc/portage/postsync.d/eix-update

if [ -x /usr/bin/eix-update ] ; then
  cp -a /var/cache/eix/portage.eix /var/cache/eix/previous.eix
  eix-update -q
fi
:


Creating "previous.eix" facilitates running of `eix-diff`. The closing ":" command insures that this short script always returns with an errorlevel of 0, regardless of how eix-update finishes.
