qbt addRepository is the easiest way to add a new repository to your manifest file. Make sure you git init your repository where the override would go, and that your repository has at least one commit which is pointed to by HEAD. You can then run the qbt addRepository command.

The command will both add the repository to your manifest file, and push the first pin to your pin cache, which used to be very annoying to do manually.
