The youbroketheinternet overlay (short: ybti) is a collaborative maintained Gentoo developer overlay. Some of us are involved with SecuShare, but we try out all sorts of XKEYSCORE-resistant technology.

Access URLs

If you have not already moved on to GNU Guix you may find our Gentoo overlay accessible at one of the following (public exposed) URLs:

  • git://cheettyiapsyciew.onion/youbroketheinternet-overlay (primary)
  • https://gnunet.org/git/youbroketheinternet-overlay.git
  • git://gnunet.org/youbroketheinternet-overlay.git

We are working on making our developer overlay accessible via GNUnet

Using it


Update the layman overlay list:

root #layman -S

Add the youbroketheinternet overlay:

root #layman -a youbroketheinternet


When you use layman, first git clone from one of the URLs, and then add this to the /etc/portage/repos.conf/youbroketheinternet.conf file:

FILE /etc/portage/repos.conf/youbroketheinternet.conf
priority = 50
location = /var/lib/layman/youbroketheinternet-overlay
sync-type = git
auto-sync = No

Depending on if you used tor (you can torify git) for the .onion or just used the clearnet overlay you can adjust the auto-sync value. Adjust other values to your needs and situation.

Statement from the README

We produce original ebuilds for some items but we also borrow and  
build from other sources, then republish them via a secure authen-
tication medium, a Tor onion. Since all of git, rsync and https  
protocols can be man in the middled, using a self-authenticating  
onion is the way to go. Makes you nervous? Why.. this is not about  
anonymity. All the known problems related to onion services are  
about de-anonymization. There are no known cases of authenticity  
failure, which is what we expect from this. So we copy other  
people's ebuilds because we don't want to integrate insecure  
overlays into our operating system build procedures. So, if your  
ebuild is in here, it's an honor for us to be hosting a copy.  

Please drop by
         or http://loupsycedyglgamf.onion/PSYC/
         or torify telnet loupsycedyglgamf.onion
for feedback and 'git pull' offers.

Git was intended for everyone to run their own little git server  
and pull from each other. Git was NOT invented for centralized  
commercial social networking clouds such as github! If you want  
to submit a patch to this overlay, pass it in form of a textual  
patch or make your copy of this git available on your own onion.  
Github is not a safe infrastructure for a GNU Internet.
