downgrade to portage-2.3.8: Default distfiles and packages directories are now in /var/cache/portage



I updated (emerge -vauND @world) this morning (I'm using kits) and was told:

Funtoo's downgrade to portage-2.3.8 is intentional. we are syncing with upstream versions.

Default distfiles and packages directories are now in /var/cache/portage. Please adjust your system as needed!

I'm a newbie and I'm afraid I'm not positive what this means. I never changed DISTDIR or PKGDIR.


I'm guessing it means eclean/eclean-dist (which I hadn't yet used) will now never clean up /usr/portage/distfiles or /usr/portage/packages but otherwise doesn't matter to me -- is that right?
