How to add this repo using layman
=================================

sudo layman -f -o https://git.backbone.ws/kolan/Overlay/raw/branch/master/layman.xml -a backbone


Using Backbone's Profiles
=========================

Default Desktop/Laptop Profile
------------------------------
/etc/portage/make.profile/parent:
/var/portage/portage/profiles/default/linux/amd64/13.0
/var/portage/layman/backbone/profiles/desktop

Extreme Desktop/Laptop Profile
--------------------------------------------------------
Warning! Using this profile is unsafe as it could lead
to undefined behaviour of several packages!
Not all packages are ready for the profile.
Look at profiles/extreme/profile.bashrc for the exclusions I've added.
/etc/portage/make.profile/parent:
/var/portage/portage/profiles/default/linux/amd64/13.0
/var/portage/layman/backbone/profiles/extreme

Hardened Server Profile
------------------------------
/etc/portage/make.profile/parent:
/var/portage/portage/profiles/hardened/linux/amd64/no-multilib
/var/portage/layman/backbone/profiles/server


Repositories Priorities
=======================

My /etc/portage/repos.conf/gentoo.conf:

[DEFAULT]
main-repo = gentoo

[gentoo]
sync-type = git
priority = -1000

[local_overlay]
priority = -999

[backbone]
priority = -999


Remarks
=======

For Desktops/Laptops I'm using backbone-sources:
https://git.backbone.ws/kolan/backbone-sources.

For Gentoo/Kernel Upgrading I'm using app-admin/gentoo-upgrade package scripts.

For the whole system rebuild I recommend app-portage/ewo package.

For finding cruft files I'm using app-portage/findcruftfiles (do filter output carefully).
