silentcoder.co.za: Gentoo has rightfully become the distribution of choice among hackers. It’s powerful, fast, and extremely customizable. The source based builds lets you tweak packages to your needs. The man most primarily responsible for this is Daniel Robbins - the man who started gentoo, and if you’ve been following his blogs over the past few weeks - it’s scary.
blog.funtoo.org (Daniel Robbins): It looks like someone nominated me for the upcoming Gentoo trustee election. Before I know how to reply to this nomination, I need to know if it is even valid.
gentoo.org: The election for the new trustees of the Gentoo Foundation is almost here! There is an open call for nominees; any voting members of the Gentoo Foundation may be nominated.
gentoo.org/news: Daniel Drake of the kernel team announced that gentoo-sources 2.6.24 has already entered the tree. Marked ~arch for testing, by the end of February it should hit stable.
Highlights include: How to grow minions, Gentoo as a religion?, Portage needs you!, and Things not to do to your Gentoo.
gentoo.org: Release Engineering team members are in the planning stages for 2008.0, and they want your help! Is there anything you'd like to see added, changed or removed from Gentoo's release media?
gentoo.org: A comprehensive testing checklist will be developed on the gentoo-releng mailing list, as will a list of which details of testers' machines and environments they should turn in to developers.
Gentoo's Release Engineering team will hold a meeting at 2000 UTC Wednesday, Jan. 23. The team plans to discuss several topics, including the upcoming 2008.0 release and how to involve the community more in the release process. An open floor Q&A session will follow the moderated portion of the meeting. To attend, just join #gentoo-releng on irc.freenode.net!
Daniel Robbins: I am left to interpret Grant's response as a "No" answer to my offer as it was originally presented to the trustees. It appears that Grant is making an effort to tackle Foundation legal issues by pro-actively renewing the Foundation's charter.
tsunam.org: I am of the opinion that Gentoo should not contract the SFC to manage the Foundation. I am of the opinion that Gentoo should welcome the return of Daniel Robbins, but in a somewhat more limited sense than his recent offer.
