What problems are we trying to solve? Why is the exherbo approach better? More specific questions: * How fine-grained do you want the repositories to be? * Who controls access? * How is QA being done? * Who defines what is "officially supported" (right now it is "in the tree, not p.masked") * What about global data (the non-cache files in metadata, eclasses)?
