I am not aware of such an overlay. None of the public available at http://overlays.gentoo.org/ have Dovecot in their repository.

Yes. You did. But hey! We are all human and what do I know what happened on that day in your life? Nothing. Maybe you just had a bad day? I am not mad at all. Why should I?

I understand that. But I am not a programmer. I know programming and sure one part of my earning is done from programming but that is just one small part. Anyway...

You should not be. In the beginning everything is somehow hard. But only starting is the hard part. After a while you will find yourself doing it for pretty much everything you need and can't wait that a Gentoo developer does it for you. You even will realize that not everything done in Gentoo is the way you like it and you see then possibilities in doing things better (for you) then the original Gentoo ebuild developer has done. Off course you will go to bugs.gentoo.org and post there your requests for change and there will be situations/ebuilds where the original Gentoo developer will welcome your changes and there will be situations/ebuilds where the Gentoo developer is ignorant and you give up and basically maintain your own ebuild.
