<resolution>
<p>Gentoo has discontinued support for Openswan. We recommend that users
unmerge Openswan:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --unmerge "net-misc/openswan"
</code>
<p>NOTE: The Gentoo developer(s) maintaining Openswan have discontinued
support at this time. It may be possible that a new Gentoo developer will
update Openswan at a later date. Alternatives packages such as Libreswan
and strongSwan are currently available in Gentoo Portage.
