Edit layman's config, add ae-repo to layman:
# nano /etc/layman/layman.cfg
overlays : http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/overlays/repositories.xml
not my repo but a valued tool to make a chroot to make bin packages on the fly for testing...
can be added the old fashioned way just kinda a pain if you have several boxes.
I've just mailed the overlay owner to get his confirmation.
No reply yet, asked on bug tracker now. But I see that he didn't reply you about the GC closing either...
hopefully he move it to github
before the the big googlecode crunch
if ported to use overlayfs too a plus.
its nice for making very small chroots dynamically then dropping in the packages to portage/packages (and if a depend fails in building system don't go boom....)
and not cratering install ..

overlayfs might be a nice feature too
however getting aufs3 or a fuse module of late to run has been the irritation on using.
if He dont I say fork it !!
Ok, I see necrose99 alrady done it :)
Now needs to sync/cleanup it...
> overlayfs might be a nice feature too
I looked at overlayfs when it was officially added to the kernel - it has lack of functionality. (Afair, cascading leaves did not supported) I need to review it.

I think I need add support for different overlapping fs. There are some request about it.
Well, I see that it was officially moved to github . However, it looks like ugly svn->git copy-paste that doesn't have proper structure for an overlay, and doesn't seem to be updated at all.
I don't think we should really add it until the project is maintained again and properly split into repositories suitable for layman. If you can, please try contacting upstream and determining what the state and future of the project is. If you decide to fork it, I'll be happy to add it all.
