I've read (en passant) in the latest GWN that games-fps/quake1 has been removed and that made me feel kind of sorry. Of course I don't have it installed and I understand it is just an old game and so on, but one of the things I most liked of gentoo was the feeling (unrealistic) that there was always an ebuild ready for every software ever written at any time worth of it (in an overlay, filed as a bug or in portage). Of course it is not possible and ebuilds in portage should be only those working and well mantained. But what if someone in a couple of years gets nostalgic and wants to play quake (or something else that has been removed) like in old times? He has to write the ebuild from scratch or there is a way to retrive old ebuilds (and patches) that are no longer in portage?
