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.

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
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.
