I regularly contribute ebuilds & patches to b.g.o, for example the initial
RabbitMQ ebuild. The problem is the lack of a dedicated maintainer who
must also be a registered Gentoo dev.
Currently even erlang itself is under proxy-maintenance. I help whereever
I can, but the strong coupling of these roles is a huge problem. Overlays
are one solution, but it's necessary to prevent community fragmentation -
hence my post. :)

thanks
Holger
