If it's free from any security flaws, then it's apparently win-win situation
(a'ka "why store something that is already there - non-distfiles hash").
Issue related to Manifests needs to be solved somehow to fully gain from git
Still, what about git overlays that cannot utilize rsync method? This way they
are no longer compatible with package manager and such method cannot be
applied. It would be nice to have some common but working solution (if
possible that is).
And of course even gentoo-x86 cannot be just cloned and used as PORTDIR,..
unless, hmm, Manifests are fetched and then "fixed" (regenerating missing
manifests lines) on "client side" using git hooks and updated (stripping non-
DIST digests) and then commited using git hooks.
Is it possible?
