Here's an alternative idea: * Move the repository information into the overlays themselves. Require overlays to provide a file containing the description, homepage, owner information etc. * After a certain amount of time, switch new versions of layman to use a new file that's generated from these. Any overlay that doesn't contain such a file is clearly unmaintained and should no longer be supported. * Also use this opportunity to clean up the repo_name vs layman name mess: any repository that gets it wrong should not be included in the new layman file. Sounds like a perfect opportunity to make sure that everything in layman's still actively maintained and developed. -- Ciaran McCreesh
