Gentoo devs will look at bugs that affect Sabayon users when they're 
reproducible in vanilla Gentoo environments. If not, how to support 
them? This is the same with all other unofficial overlays.

As far as making ixnay a developer goes, I rather think he would not 
want to do that anyway, especially with his weird ideas to "fork away 
from [Gentoo's] bugs" [1] and give Gentoo back to drobbins.

Would having him as a developer do any good community wise? I don't 
know, but after reading [2, the last paragraphs], my guess is 'no'.

Regards,

Robert
