4 No, not really. That was a push by ex-devs (maybe others) a long
5 time ago, and the work was never actually accomplished. Except for
6 a limited number of migrations, nothing ever really became of it
7 early on. Looks like we have a fair number of organized uses in it
8 now.
10 We do have 4 repos though... Which developed all around the time
11 that the "gentoo" repo came into being.
13 gentoo
14 gentoo-x86
15 gentoo-src
16 gentoo-projects
18 Gentoo-projects was created for a reason unknown to me when I
19 asked, way back when. Looks like the TLPs took refuge there,
20 which is how it looks like it should be.
22 Gentoo-src is still used by portage, baselayout, releng, and
23 has a number of older projects that could probably be useful
24 if revivied.
26 A major issue with moving gentoo-src is that the history would
27 be lost. (At least, I'm fairly certain it would be, correct me.)
28 That would be very unpleasant for portage, as I do use it on
29 occasion to verify changes and review committers. I imagine it'd
30 be nice to keep the commit logs and nametags for a long long
31 while.
