I had not seen that - that's wonderful!

I would just request that /packages/ is removed from the start of
package URLs. I understand how this makes request routing more
complicated, but I consider it a significant usability improvement.

I think this is a very good feature.

If I ever do become a proper Gentoo developer I will certainly not spend
any time on anything to do with GitHub, and in my current position of
occasional contributor I don't either. The workflow imposed by GitHub
isn't good and it's important to demonstrate other methods.
