Since PORTDIR_OVERLAY has been deprecated the handbook should be updated to reflect those changes.--Moaxcp (talk) 17:09, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

This was done in a previous edit. --Grknight (talk) 15:47, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Overlay guide

Talk status
This discussion is done.

This article still contains a link to the old overlay guide. Perhaps we should update that link to the new overlay guide. Fturco (talk) 16:02, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

This is the same link? Did you accidentally link wrong? Need more info. --Maffblaster (talk) 23:39, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

Aries97 (talk) 22:59, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

This appears to have changed in a previous edit. --Grknight (talk) 15:52, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Defining a custom repository

Talk status
This discussion is done as of October 26, 2020.

This section could benefit if a link were given, say at the start of it, to Overlay/Local_overlay since they both treat, essentially, the same subject --MiroR (talk) 20:30, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

That page no longer exists. Can you suggest an alternative? --Grknight (talk) 15:54, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
It seems moved to Custom repository.--Charles17 (talk) 09:23, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
And now Custom ebuild repository. --Maffblaster (talk) 22:52, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Excluding packages and categories

Talk status
This discussion is done as of October 27, 2021.

I did the rsync excluding thing and deleted games-* now i get a syncing manifest error:

 Manifest mismatch for games-action/Manifest.gz
   __exists__: expected: True, have: False.

My guess is its trying to verify something i do not have. The documentation should be updated to address this.

Cj.wijtmans (talk) 16:09, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

I have added a new paragraph to this section to show what is necessary for this old section to work. It will reduce security back to the old ways of no verification. Perhaps this section should be removed instead. --Grknight (talk) 16:03, 24 August 2020 (UTC)
I came along later and added more explicit warnings to Brian Evans (grknight) 's excellent work. I believe any reader now proceeding with the rsync exclusions will think twice about the risks associated. I also noted that exclusions are unsupported and that readers should proceed knowing the risks. See Special:Diff/950520/1023678. --Maffblaster (talk) 18:16, 27 October 2021 (UTC)

Link to instructions for layman installation

Talk status
This discussion is done as of October 27, 2021.

In the "layman" section, the link "Overlays User Guide" does not point to a page about layman. Suggest link to layman instead.

All the best.

Ris (talk) 09:29, 30 June 2021 (UTC)

Added a link to the Layman article. See Special:Diff/1023678/1023684. --Maffblaster (talk) 18:27, 27 October 2021 (UTC)

eselect repository create

Talk status
This discussion is done as of June 30, 2021.

eselect repository now has a feature to make an ebuild repository skeleton with the create command.

I would like to suggest adding this method as an alternative to the manual setup, in the "Defining a custom ebuild repository" section. A link to Eselect/Repository#Create_a_new_local_repository in this section also seems appropriate.

Ris (talk) 09:48, 30 June 2021 (UTC)

This is done.

eselect vs layman

Talk status
This discussion is done as of August 23, 2021.

The section Working with several overlays shows implicitly that layman and eselect repository have the same functionality. This maybe should be explicitly mentioned. Also, I understood that layman is now deprecated so maybe it's time to completely remove layman or at least change the order of presentation?


Layman isn't mentioned anymore.
