&gt; &gt;&gt; &gt; If not I will be leaving Gentoo for Funtoo in the near future, though<br>
&gt; &gt;&gt; &gt; there are disadvantages to doing this I don&#39;t look forward to dealing<br>
&gt; &gt;&gt; &gt; with.<br>
&gt; &gt;&gt;<br>
&gt; &gt;&gt; Most of us will probably be doing that :P.<br>
&gt; &gt;<br>
&gt; &gt; Eh sorry that wasn&#39;t meant to be antagonistic. I&#39;ll still have Gentoo<br>
&gt; &gt; boxen to deal with. I just need to be able to use git on the tree (even<br>
&gt; &gt; without the full history is perfectly fine) to ease the difficulty of<br>
&gt; &gt; local overlay management. Glad to hear that will be possible, or at<br>
&gt; &gt; least somewhat easier.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; FWIW, I as a user would sure like a git-based tree.  Doing git whatchanged<br>
&gt; searches on individual files and being able to track my last checkout and<br>
&gt; roll back to it, or to a point between it and current HEAD, are extremely<br>
&gt; useful.  I haven&#39;t thought of it much until now, but I think maintaining<br>
&gt; overlays as simple branches would be great, as well.<br>
<br>
</div>I don&#39;t think doing a branch of the entire tree is a good idea (well<br>
maybe...). I was thinking more along the lines of subtree merges into a local<br>
overlay, or perhaps submodules. To do that currently (I think) would require<br>
taking the rsync tree and putting that into a repo, and trying to keep it<br>
synchronized. Plus in the process you lose all correspondance with upstream<br>
commits so that logs and diffs become meaningless.<br>
