how to "extract" a GIT repository
when I use a -9999 type ebuild which accesses the source from a GIT
repository this is stored under /usr/portage/distfiles/git-src/$PN
where $PN is the package name.
But one cannot look at the source files since these are in compressed
How can I setup a directory with the uncompressed sources.
I could use
ebuild <PATH TO ebuild file> unpack
and then look at /var/tmp/portage/..../work/....
but is there a direct way (or how does portage do this)?
Many thanks for a hint,
