This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

2) Here is a howto for the local overlay:

3) In the local overlay use the portage groups: mkdir media-gfx/lightzone

4) Get the LightZone.ebuild from an put it in the local overlay.

5) Move into the new directory media-gfx/lightroom and do: repoman manifest

5a) (added 2017-03-29) Do pushd "local Overlay"/media-gfx/lightzone (found in
