Often times Gentoo developers and members of the community have helped me in big ways. They've provided advice, training, solutions, technical expertise, guidelines, ideas, testing, etc. This article is dedicated to mentioning times when I've personally received help from those kind and helpful souls in the Gentoo community.

To quickly undo the most recent commit:

user $git revert --no-edit -s -S <commit_hash> && git push

Output

Portage 'global updates'

Performing Global Updates
(Could take a couple of minutes if you have a lot of binary packages.)
  .='update pass'  *='binary update'  #='/var/db update'  @='/var/db move'
  s='/var/db SLOT move'  %='binary move'  S='binary SLOT move'
  p='update /etc/portage/package.*'

Quotes

In reference to asking where the /lib/cpp file originates on my system:

@jcallen_ it's created by gcc-config because at one time at least one standard required that the c preprocessor (if installed) be available at exactly "/lib/cpp"

Data loss

For stager:

Three things are certain: Death, taxes, and lost data. Guess which has occurred.
