Default What is with the gnome overlay?

Has something happened to the gnome overlay.

It seems to exist

oldlap ~ # layman -L | grep gnome
* gnome [Git ] (git://git.o.g.o/proj/gnome.git, h...)
* gnome-live [Git ] (git://git.o.g.o/proj/gnome-live.g...)

But it seems to not exist

oldlap ~ # layman -s gnome

* Fetching remote list,...
* Remote list already up to date: http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/overlays/repositories.xml
* Last-modified: Wed, 21 Sep 2011 13:30:15 GMT
* Fetch Ok

* Syncing selected overlays,...
*
* Errors:
* ------
* Failed to select overlay "gnome".
* Error was: Exception: Overlay "gnome" does not exist.
*

thanks,
allan

I suppose it's a layman problem, cloning the repository by hand seems to work:

git clone git://git.overlays.gentoo.org/proj/gnome.git

I have not used that overlay, and don't know what's happening, but in
general when the overlay address changes, you need to delete and
re-add the overlay. So I always try that if I get a strange error like
you're getting.

Thanks for the tip but that seems to cause even more strange behavior.
Deleting says it is not there; adding says it is already there.

oldlap ~ # layman -d gnome

* Deleting selected overlays,...
* Repository 'gnome' was not installed

oldlap ~ # layman -a gnome

* Adding overlay,...
* Running Git... # /usr/bin/git clone git://git.overlays.gentoo.org/proj/gnome.git /var/lib/layman/gnome
fatal: destination path '/var/lib/layman/gnome' already exists and is not an empty directory.
* Failure result returned from Git

There were changes to layman lately, maybe you need to rename or
change your config. In layman.cfg I see this:

In my layman.cfg I see:

#-----------------------------------------------------------
# The list of locally installed overlays

installed: %(storage)s/installed.xml

# This has been renamed from the following
# old name : value use it for updating to new one above
# local_list: %(storage)s/overlays.xml
# either rename the overlays.xml file to installed.xml
# or edit the value above to the current name of your
# installed overlay(s) file.
