The term "overlay" is deprecated and is replaced by the term "ebuild repository"! The "Overlay" and "Overlay Talk" namespaces should be modified accordingly.

N.B: I think we should also choose a diminutive for "ebuild repository". The term "repository" has been reduced to "repos" as in "/etc/portage/repos.conf". Maybe, we could choose "ebd-repos", "e-repos", or "e_repos", ...

The Gentoo developers still need to discuss this change on a project wide basis, so I am hesitant to make this change until we get the terms solidified and agreed upon. Some developers still like the term 'overlay' to be used for everything except the Gentoo ebuild repository.
