Gentoo Linux BoFS

Patrick McLean (chutzpah@linuxfreak.ca)

Gentoo Linux has been one of the fastest growing distributions, and still is a very fast growing distribution. Being a "meta-distribution" we do not have distribution releases, simply installation media/livecd releases. As such we do not have the 6 month cycle that other distributions have, but instead we are always a moving target. This fact allows to be somewhat more nimble than other distributions, but at the same time can make it somewhat more work to keep up to date than a "normal" distribution.

At this BOFS we will discuss the current state of Gentoo, and the where Gentoo is likely going in the future. There will be at least one active Gentoo developer in attendance.
