I don't understand how can I switch to paludis without ebuild replacement.

ebuild fetch is not working anymore as DISTDIR is paludis and not
portage. OK... Let's say I solved this by duplicating the DISTDIR.

ebuild compile/test/install takes that USE/KEYWORDS from /etc/portage,
so do you maintain both environments, right?

So how do you write new packages?

Thank you,
