Has anyone heard if/when Gentoo will have an overlay/portage tree now that LXDE and Razor-Qt have merged?

Good question. I prefer Qt over Gtk, but hate Kde 4. This merge just might be what I have been looking for. (Xfce hasn't been a bad experience though. I have doubts that they will have a smooth transaction to Gtk3 however)

Well I don't think that LXDE-qt is ready yet. If you go to their wiki you will see that their are still in the process of porting core components from gtk to qt. http://wiki.lxde.org/en/LXDE-Qt
It seems to suggest at the moment you need to modularly install razor and lxde ported pieces. For example you will find PCmanFM-qt in x11-misc overlay (althought it is hard masked ). I haven't looked for any other packages in overlays but you can search yourself at http://gpo.zugaina.org/

I think once the LXDE-qt team make a proper release later this year (hopefully) you will see meta packages appear in overlays.

Hope this helped

I that the reason why razor-qt hasn't been updated for ages? However, I am really looking forward to the test the outcome of that merge.

Hmm... I just did a world update, and emerge --depclean suddenly wants to remove all of the lxde-base/* packages, along with a bunch of dev-ruby/* stuff.

Could this be a sign the gtk lxde is going away? However, portage still has all the lxde ebuilds, and the latest update to any of them is 10/25/13.

The latest razorqt/base portage update was 12/9/13 (razorqt/meta).

When I tried to reach http://wiki.lxde.org/en/LXDE-Qt it says the site is experiencing
"technical difficulties."

I don't think, look at http://packages.gentoo.org/category/lxde-base

Three weeks ago I tried the lxde-qt live ebuilds of the qt overlay. Works well using the sets/lxde-qt-live !
You should try sddm as displaymanager also at qt-overlay.

I was reading the blogs at lxde.org and it seems to have made good progress in stability.

I looked around and there is a lxde-qt in the qt overlay, but it hasn't had anything added in the last 5 months.
Notably pcmanfm-qt is not there. I know that there is an ebuild for pcmanfm-qt in the regular portage tree.

The question is, are there plans for lxde-qt/lxqt (whatever the name is) to be added to the regular tree and kept current?

I recently made an attempt to pull it from github and build it. The build sh script didn't work, and the CMake files are not in a good state with respect to necessary dependencies. I resolved to follow along with their progress on github, but AFAICT it's still a pretty raw project.
