Some link for an explanation (maybe in a subarticle) about authenticity of host would be nice:

user $git clone -o upstream git+ssh://
Cloning into 'gentoo'...
The authenticity of host ' (' can't be established.

Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? y

Please type 'yes' or 'no': yes

According to this forum topic, the git+ssh:// protocol can be used only by Gentoo developers, not by end users. --Charles17 (talk) 17:02, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
Yes and no. This picture explains it better. Only the developer with write access to the tree writes to The user may do what he/she wants on the github fork. File:Github_pull_request.png Please comment on the new picture. We can improve it and then cut it into sections for this article. I think it fits better than the current illustration. --Jonas Stein (talk) 23:40, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the nice picture. My question was related to this version where you said User configures the local repository using that certain command. git clone -o upstream git+ssh:// Did you mean to say ordinary users could use git+ssh:// but not git+ssh:// (talk) 07:08, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
You can use git+ssh on your fork of the gentoo/gentoo repository on GitHub, but usually not on the gentoo/gentoo repository directly. Waebbl (talk) 12:45, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
In my opinion the new picture illustrates the process very well. I would propose to either put Alice to the right of the picture, or split it into two pictures, one for each role. Waebbl (talk) 12:45, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

github as main portage tree

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 13 September 2018.

Step 0 variant b doesn't actually lead to a working main portage tree since it lacks metadata, e.g. eix considers the repo to be empty then. Maybe there's some more steps needed to make this work? But as-is this is leads to a flawed setup that is not fully functional. If this is not working reliably, it might be better to just recommend using two repositories. Could people comment? qgp (talk) 15:42, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

contributing to Gentoo via github

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

This wiki page was useful to me, but I ran into a few issues which I cleared up in a forum post: Hope it can help get more contributions from end-users. Vieri (talk) 09:33, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
