The Goal of Funtoo

Filed under
Gentoo

A lot of people have asked me recently “What is the goal of Funtoo? What are you trying to do?”

OK, OK, here’s an explanation of what Funtoo is about. We are focusing on providing the infrastructure Gentoo needs to move to a more distributed, collaborative model. This includes a git-based Portage tree as well as the Metro build engine.

We are not a “fork” of Gentoo in the traditional sense of the word, though of course we are trying to do things better (otherwise, what would be the point of doing anything?) We are trying to aim to be as compatible with Gentoo as possible, so that it is easy for us to share technology with Gentoo.
