Layman can be used to use external portage directories via svn and more different programs and integrate all into portage.

Using Layman

At first we need to install layman:

emerge -av layman

Create Own Layman Repository

At first create a virtual host in your apache config and place there a config file for layman. overlay.xml Now add to the file /etc/layman/layman.conf the line:

overlays  :

Edit /etc/make.conf

source /usr/portage/local/layman/make.conf

Now we create the xml file on the server:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
            contact = ""
            name = "idefix"
            src  = "http://overlay.idefix.lan/"
            type = "svn"
            status = "official">


                        Idefix overlay.
