Also forgot to mentioned that, overlay is the only place where you can learn the Gentoo workflow, _before_ becoming an actual dev. In overlay you can do things like, repoman commit, manifest signing, package{.use} masking etc. That's IMO invaluable experience for would-be dev. It's one thing writing about it in quizzes and another actually doing it. Kacper
