ok , I heard of a debian that uses the gentoo portage system I was wonder if

ok , I heard of a net install debian that uses the gentoo portage system I was wonder if I could use a command in sources.list to get the deb *** portage system in debian that can install the deb packs thought it ,
does anyone here know were I can find the http:// link or ftp:// link for he debian from skcatch portage system , what to add it to my unstable (sid) system

unstable and sid is the same right? also I aptitude it does not seem to change the versions of the files why? I first had woody on it then updated it to unstable version information only updated with apt-get dist-upgrade and apt-get upgrade system only seem to detected different files , as I can tell the only difference in gnome is from 50 to 52? strange version numbers, also notice that kde 3.12 is the same under desktop users selection , only under uninstall apps did it show the only newer version number , also note xfree version did not change either in aptitude it still shows version 4.3.0 not 4.4.0 which should be the newest beta version , what happened did it not update every thing right?
