Hi,

currently

$EPREFIX/usr/portage/profiles/repo_name

says

gentoo_prefix


For any overlay one can define in

$OVERLAY/metadata/layout.conf

masters = gentoo

which would break usage of the overlay in combination with the prefix
overlay because the master must be "gentoo". Setting alias = gentoo
(which the prefix tree should be more then less) would allow such use
case as it would alias the prefix-tree to act as getnoo-tree.

As far as I know there will be change for the ordinary usability of the
prefix tree. also for the dev setups I don't see a problem, because the
change allows the lower overlays to find its master, which shouldn't
effect the rsync-tree/prefix-overlay combination as such.
