And the plan ...

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.
