If it's free from any security flaws, then it's apparently win-win situation (a'ka "why store something that is already there - non-distfiles hash"). Issue related to Manifests needs to be solved somehow to fully gain from git transition. Still, what about git overlays that cannot utilize rsync method? This way they are no longer compatible with package manager and such method cannot be applied. It would be nice to have some common but working solution (if possible that is). And of course even gentoo-x86 cannot be just cloned and used as PORTDIR,.. unless, hmm, Manifests are fetched and then "fixed" (regenerating missing manifests lines) on "client side" using git hooks and updated (stripping non- DIST digests) and then commited using git hooks. Is it possible? -- regards MM
