Hi.

This thread is meant to present some alternatives to http://packages.gentoo.org until the service is restored. We hope this helps everyone, including those coming from the static page, to know what has happened and possible alternatives.
If you want to read more about what happened and why, please check bug 187971 - move any discussion to the next link.
If you want to participate in a discussion about the service being taken down, please check this thread.

Now, the reason for this page is to list current alternatives. So, without further ado, as alternatives try the following:

Online package list and search
http://packages.gentooext.net/ - maintained by jokey (gentoo dev) and possible replacement
http://spaceparanoids.org/gentoo/gpnl/ - maintained by beandog (gentoo dev)
http://www.gentoo-portage.com/ - maintained by Mike Valstar

http://gentoo.linuxhowtos.org/portage/
http://pebuilds.peschke.us/ - maintained by Chris Peschke
http://amirouche.alwaysdata.net/

Official webcvs site and link to do searches on Google
http://sources.gentoo.org/viewcvs.py/gentoo-x86/
http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Asources.gentoo.org

Local tools
eix (app-portage/eix)
qsearch
/ qgrep (app-portage/portage-utils)
equery (app-portage/gentoolkit)

And last, but not least, never forget you have all you need on your Portage dir:
/usr/portage
