This overlay is mainly for my own usage, though packages are of reasonable quality and do not conflict with the official portage tree if you use stable.

There is some software I watch closely that should be always up-to-date, at least: esniper, minbif, assnet, weboob, irker, rtorrent-notify, tmpclone, brutha, xunitparser.

Most of the remaining packages are developer tools and Python libraries.

There is an effort to package third-party supported versions of Symfony 1.4.

You can browse the package list:

This overlay is available in the default layman list. Just run:

    # layman -a laurentb

The commits should now be signed by my GPG key.

    # gpg --recv-key 0x3463EA5A518A9C75
    # GIT_DIR="/var/lib/layman/laurentb/.git" git log -n1 --show-signature

You can check the authenticity of my key by various means, including:
* namecoin id/laurentb
* The GPG web of trust
