Daniel Robbins' Offer Rejected by Gentoo Foundation Trustee

Filed under
Gentoo

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.

Why the SFC Should Not Manage Gentoo Foundation

Gentoo

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.

Not the GWN, Release 2

Humor

We're not in any way related to the Gentoo Weekly Newsletter (GWN) or as it is known now, the GMN. Although inverting the W to be a more grounded M is a radical step and gives the acronym a much more youthful and dynamic look we don't like it that much. An "O" would have made it look much rounder and mature. Also, adding a small "e" at the end would have made it look much more Web 2.0 and stuff. And who can claim that "GONe" is a bad acronym?

Gentoo Foundation Update - Current State of Affairs

Filed under
Gentoo

grantgoodyear.org: I spent some time this week talking to the Foundation's lawyers, collecting documents, and sifting through old e-mails. Having the Foundation's charter revoked is exceptionally embarrassing, but not catastrophic. The state of NM has a straightforward procedure for reinstating a revoked charter.

Also: Is Gentoo in crisis?
And: Gentoo kernel project contributors

The reports of Gentoo's death have been greatly exaggerated.

mpagano.com: Yes, Gentoo has some issues concerning the Gentoo foundation. Yes, we are actively working on straightening out these issues. No, Gentoo is not dying.

Stepping Up for Gentoo

Gentoo

LinuxToday blog: Any day now, we should start seeing four more faces on the backs of milk cartons: those of the apparently vanished members of the former Gentoo Foundation who have apparently resigned from the five-member board.

A tale of two cultures...

Gentoo

Daniel Robbins: It's pretty clear to me that there is a huge disconnect between Gentoo developers and the rest of the universe - by "universe" I mean Gentoo users, outside Gentoo-based projects, organizations using Gentoo Linux and the Open Source/Free Software community as a whole.

Gentoo 2007.1 Cancelled, Foundation & Newsletter discussed

Filed under
Gentoo

This morning Christina Fullam states that it was decided just before Christmas to cancel the 2007.1 release and roll all the effort into Gentoo 2008.0 since there was little possibility of getting a well-tested 2007.1 release out before 2008. In other posts the status of Gentoo Foundation and the weekly newsletter were discussed.

The First Vivid-Based Ubuntu Touch Image Has Been Released

As I have previously announced, the Ubuntu Touch development branch is based on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, while the Ubuntu RTM branch is still using Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn as code base, because it has already received stability improvements and will by default on the first Ubuntu powered Meizu phone. Currently, all the new features are implemented on the Ubuntu-Devel branch, the RTM one receiving only fixes. Read more

Security-Minded Qubes OS Will Satisfy Your Yen for Xen

It has advanced far beyond the primitive proof of concept demonstrated more than four years ago. Release 2 (beta), which arrived in late September, is a powerful desktop OS. Qubes succeeds in seamless integrating security by isolation into the user experience. However, comparing Qubes to a typical Linux distro is akin to comparing the Linux OS to Unix. Read more

Sad News! ;-)

So, XP is dead, “7” is dying, “8” is a zombie, and “10” is vapourware with nowhere to call home. M$ continues layoffs. POOF! It all falls down. In the meantime Google and the OEMs will crank out many millions of ChromeBooks. Canonical, Linpus, RedHat, Suse… and the OEMs will crank out many millions of GNU/Linux PCs. Several OEMs will crank out many millions of GNU/Linux thin clients. Android/Linux will reverberate with another billion or so units of small cheap computers(tablets, smartphones). This looks like good news to me. Read more

Android creator Andy Rubin is leaving Google

The move is, perhaps, not a total surprise. Last March, Rubin left the Android group and was replaced by Sundar Pichai. His latest project, as detailed in a lengthy New York Times report in December, was creating robots for a project outside of the company's Google X lab, something that dovetailed with Google's shopping spree of robotics companies. In 2012, there were also rumors abound that Rubin planned to leave for a stealth-mode startup called CloudCar, though they were vehemently denied. Read more
