Hi Stefan,

My apologies if this is a stupid question that I could have known.  Is
this overlay hosted on Gentoo hardware?  And does it allow non-Gentoo
people to commit to it?  Would it be possible to for instance have the
Gentoo/Alt prefix overlay hosted on this thing and have our external
contributors being able to commit?  Reading the project page, I get the
feeling this would be possible.  How is your attitute towards hosting
the Gentoo/Alt prefix tree?

Thanks for your time.
