+Deprecated eclasses
+:PG: 1003
+:Source: individual eclass maintainers
+:Reported: by pkgcheck and repoman
+Deprecated eclasses should not be used in new ebuilds. Existing
+packages should be updated not to use these eclasses on version bumps,
+or proactively when no version bumps are expected.
+The current list of deprecated eclasses is stored along with suggested
+replacements as ``deprecated-eclass`` section
+of ``metadata/qa-policy.conf``.
