I've got a question for those more familiar to making ebuilds with
git. Currently I need to apply a specific patch to mythtv to get
lipsync working right on my setup (I understand a similar fix is
included in 0.25.) Up till now I've been using cardoe's Gentoo ebuilds
(I'm still on 0.23) and creating my own overlay with a copy of the
ebuild with the added patch. Is this still the right way to do it,
i.e. create another overlay into which I copy the ebuilds I got from
