Frankly people like you kill every possible joy I might get out of this
- all you do is complain, not one word about the relative niceness of
this project and what it could do for the state of the ebuilds.

That being said - No, I didn't talk to anyone about it before going
ahead, portage is gpl'ed, I can do what ever I want to it, and I intend
to. I didn't want to announce anything untill it was off the ground
because I think people spend FAR to much time talking and FAR to little
time actually doing something. 
I didn't expect it to take off this fast, we have been going for a few
days, and there are now several ebuilds waiting in queue to be comfirmed
working once that has happened they will be forwarded to bugzilla. (This
all written in the guidelines on the forum, but I'm guessing you didn't
even take your time to read that).

Now suggest you do some research before giving nice people like my
teammates and myself a hard time.

Please note that one of the most common words used on the forum is
developers - as in let's ask the developers if this is the correct way
to do this.
