+<h2 id="playman">No Layman (and how Playman is different)</h2>
+<p>Many gentoo projects and developers maintain ebuild overlays which can be
+configured with the <code>layman</code> tool. Layman will not work with a
+paludis configuration. Instead, you should use the <code>playman</code> tool.
+Unlike layman, playman only creates the necessary configuration for the overlay,
+and is not used to sync it. A regular <code>paludis --sync</code> will sync your
+main repository as well as your overlays.</p>
+<p>To get playman, just install paludis 0.26.0_alpha13 or later with the ruby
+USE flag enabled. The script will be installed as /usr/bin/playman.
+<code>playman --help</code> describes the available options.</p>
