Hello list, running
Code:
# uname -a
Linux birra 3.8.13-gentoo #5 SMP Tue Aug 6 14:53:13 BRT 2013 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3517U CPU @ 1.90GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux


Today after an emerge --sync I found this
Code:
# eselect news read 12
2013-11-23-gnome-38
  Title                     Upgrade to GNOME 3.8
  Author                    Pacho Ramos <pacho@gentoo.org>
  Posted                    2013-11-23
  Revision                  1

We are pleased to announce the stabilization of GNOME 3.8. Users are
strongly encouraged to read the GNOME 3.8 Upgrade Guide to avoid any
possible issues relating to the upgrade. The guide will also show you
how to migrate to systemd as it is the only supported setup now,
suggesting you how to avoid blockers and problems trying to let you
have a smoother update.

Additionally, it will inform you about important changes regarding
configuration and troubleshooting.

Please read the Gnome 3.8 Upgrade Guide:
http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/GNOME/3.8-upgrade-guide

To which I happily decided to upgrade, installed sys-apps/systemd as per guide instructions and when I was about to install gnome-base/gnome I realized
Code:

# equery keywords gnome-base/gnome

And of course emerge tries to pull 2.32.1-r2... am I missing something?

gnome-3.8 is not yet marked as stable. maybe in a few days, I think that's a warning for gnome 2.32 users :P

btw gnome 3.8 is really not stable for me. (well ... i'm using gentoo unstable but gnome 3.10 in other distros is considered stable.)
On my notebook I have installed archlinux with gnome 3.10, definitely better indeed.
In gentoo's gnome 3.8 I have got some strange flickers while dragging icons (known mutter problem), nautilus hangs or crashes while transferring big data.

Yeah this is not the first time I see a news item like this (i.e. stabilization of xxx), only to find that the package is still masked. Could somebody explain why the news are not published at the same time as the packages are stable? What's the point of this? Just seems to confuse simple minded people like me :wink:

This is exactly the same problem I am facing right now.
Did anybody figure out how to solve this?

I guess it's just continue waiting. What pisses me off is that I emerged Systemd in a system that didn't need it at all. I wander what's the rationale behind posting the news before the rekeywording.

I wouldn't worry about systemd because you definitely need it for gnome 3.
But as you stated, posting the news before the rekeywording has taken place is really strange in my eyes too 8O
Actually I was stuck on that before I read this post.
