Following this discussion on the dev list, it appears that some of us
missed the 'replace cvs with git' project going on here (on gentoo-scm).

As it's very time consuming to find the relevant previous threads. So,
could someone give us more information of the state of the project ?
(general expected workflow, technical issues, etc) A brief abstract
would be very much appreciated.

I've read the above link. Now, I know about the Manifest issue.

Also, did you had information on how git hosted overlays work ?

Thanks,
