% ./ecopy * usage: ecopy <category>/<package> * - make sure the scripts directory from the overlay is in your path * - make sure you call ecopy from the root of the overlay * - you can also specify a specific version, using the '=' prefix * and appending a version * ecopy is a best effort script only. It doesn't guarantee a working * result So, "ecopy =dev-lang/v8-3.0.12.18" should work. -Jeremy
