I installed VMware Server 2.0 a few months ago from the vmware overlay, and everything has been running smoothly. Today I went to do an update and portage complained that the URL had changed and I should remove and re-add the overlay. Dutifully (and stupidly) I did so - evidently, the overlay now has a URL beginning with svn:// rather than http:// , which is a bit of a problem, because from the internal network where this server is running I cannot connect to the Internet via whatever goofy port Subversion uses. HTTP/HTTPS was working just fine.

What are my options here? Can I manually sync it somehow via HTTP, or is there some way I can trick layman into using the HTTP URL instead (assuming it's still available)?

I daresay I would never have considered using the overlay if I thought it would one day become inaccessible for no apparent reason.

The old URL should still work.
