fritteli's Gentoo overlay
Gentoo overlay with some ebuilds that I found either outdated or missing in the official repository or in other overlays. Ebuilds are usually removed from this overlay whenever I find a version available in the official tree or in another overlay (provided I'm satisfied with them).

Using with plain (recent) Portage
Create a new config file under
/etc/portage/repos.conf/fritteli.conf with the following contents:
[fritteli] auto-sync = yes location = /usr/local/portage/overlays/fritteli sync-type = git sync-uri = https://gittr.ch/linux/gentoo-overlay.git
You may adapt the
location attribute to your system's own setup.
If you prefer to use the overlay hostet at GitHub (which tends to be more stable but less up-to-date than the one hosted at gittr.ch), you may use
https://github.com/fritteli/gentoo-overlay.git for the
Using with Layman
You may also use
layman to manage this overlay. If you choose this method, you will be using the overlay hosted at GitHub.
For detailed information regarding layman, please refer to the official documentation. This section only covers the process in a very brief manner.
If you haven't used layman yet, just install it running this command:
USE="git sync-plugin-portage" emerge layman
Then you can add this overlay wih:
layman -a fritteli
You will be prompted for confirmation because this is an experimental overlay. Just continue by hitting
Keep the overlay up to date from Git:
layman -s fritteli
Bug reports and ebuild requests
I gladly accept pull requests for bugs or new ebuilds. Before opening a pull request, please make sure your changes don't upset
repoman. Run the following command and fix warnings and errors:

Thanks go to Jakub Jirutka, the maintainer of the CVUT Overlay, from whom I shamelessly copied this README.md for a start.
