State of Gentoo BoF

Robin H Johnson (robbat2@orbis-terrarum.net)

Gentoo (http://www.gentoo.org/) is a free operating system based on either Linux or FreeBSD that can be automatically optimized and customized for just about any application or need. Extreme configurability, performance and a top-notch user and developer community are all hallmarks of the Gentoo experience.

What's the present state of Gentoo Linux? $DISTRO is dying, long live $DISTRO. What drives this perception of distribution status? Is it FUD, or is it a sign of a larger problem?

This BoF will cover recent developments and activities in the Gentoo realm, with a focus on the core distribution and services provided by the developers, Gentoo Infrastructure as well as the technical and legal administrativa (Gentoo Council and Gentoo Foundation).

Questions about progress on specific topics are warmly welcomed.
