Daniel isn't pushing much on our end, unless if by pushing you mean doing things that won't be suitable for us because last I heard, he's dropping all history from the Funtoo tree. His git patch for portage was helpful, though a very small part of the work to be done.

OK. 1. Decide whether the existing tree layout is suitable for and best in a git world. If not, what is? I have done some thinking about this at <http://dev.gentoo.org/~dberkholz/git/git_conversion.txt>. 2. Decide whether the existing development model is suitable for and best in a git world. If not, what is? I have done some thinking about this at <http://dev.gentoo.org/~dberkholz/master_plan.txt>. 3. Switch to the best layout and development model. Issue 3 is the easy one. -- Thanks, Donnie Donnie Berkholz Developer, Gentoo Linux Blog: http://dberkholz.wordpress.com
