Speaking of ATs, will we have enough arches covered within this HT
group? I can only do sparc and x86, and there are several ebuilds I
can think of that need some work on other arches. I've used both
bugzilla and the direct bugging method, but it seems like we could
use something in addition to that (exactly what, I'm not sure).
Maybe I'm just too far outside the loop on stuff; how do we
coordinate the arch component of this new overlay? Do we get an
overlay on more than one arch? Or?
