I missed this tibbit. I am not sure what you expect me to do this about this. Thomas Sachau developed the multilib overlay, he has put a great deal of work into it and he likely has a specification. You are more than welcome to talk to him about the specification. If it not well defined, feel free to share your ideas on how it could be better defined. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.17 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJP4jszAAoJECDuEZm+6Exk5EMP/0xRHW2PjOzb4xIEwW2ve+qM BJNEk5lMJfL2N8x5CM30n+uUOH665fSw26o6H6mkh397F7UO+BGCctQuBgSo0q3V s+bA3yFp5mZwr326RnnNKkgY5vKNHUjd7MH568i1ARHJdCx7Epn5Ep2o95msz0XG yzfxFkKT1O5BXKYXyLeTNfHvyS6cRx4qIaq394u0iLOZbH8eIzZT4GPhy0KkPc0S yeLLULtaSLQfO+F0QF/IDBC7Dupl0nxGp5cOBfsBC8Eg+mBOEHHemmKkRqv4Cv7X kddw9bx+wjSYx0unDztyoLQ34c1XklIteOjzU+gLZtQkJ0W7+z3XQ42RwlIGPUbM dUKsYZ2rPsKjUl0gh4Gux0PyEMkokmpygqbxd8vmE1lnAJaRR4jMgcG45jv7eSLp ToGPNRVvuQUypmqkyIgVSCzBoplC4DkymS5oVy96GbNGNPypx3AhuAMpo8NwsH58 TNqetlVI9RQp2Yq4S930pSDmeqtel4G3zm6yJhmRfhpc28fnyrh7yzNwERKAqbpU rExTfGd6BJul0cirkujo9ni9OOV1ue2WjBTqhp74BsBWjse5Q9J92zWmbZ9umcu0 JNJHr3wq/Fx1E4ozoYcVIKRor7T5mj7JuZpm+cyH5/GPfPZTzb0zuJy4JqbIKqHp RfpE5eCLf16fZrB94NYz =02/m -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
