+Updates
+================================================================================
+
+Gentoo updates should normally be done manually in case an incorrectly done
+upgrade may render the system unusable. The purpose of these scripts is to do
+the same update across regions quickly.
+
+The plan is to manually do the update in one region and record the actions
+in ${architecture}/update_gentoo.sh. Once done these scripts can be used to
+replay it in the other regions.
