The difference, as noted in the mail, is that it doesn't rely on developers having time to review ebuilds. Therefore, it is less likely to die because of developers lacking time to review stuff.

No. First of all, they weren't really two repos -- they were more like private and public branches which were made into two repos due to technical limitations. With the public branch getting all the commits from private branch merged. Secondly, both branches were reviewed. The difference is that people were supposed to ask for (IRC) review before committing to the first branch, and only developers were allowed to merge to the second branch. Thirdly, I have no clue what 'Gentoo official name' is in this contexts and I certainly don't recall big fat warnings. The only difference was that the public repo was advertised publicly while the former was intended for development. -- Best regards, Michał Górny
