Gentoo "Over the past few days, I discovered that the Gentoo Foundation's charter is in the process of being revoked by the state of New Mexico, apparently due to regular paperwork not being filed by the trustees. What this means is that the Gentoo Foundation is currently hanging for its life by a string, and at any day could cease to exist as an entity. That is the very bad news. The good news is that I was able to talk to Grant Goodyear (trustee) this morning on the phone, and I have confirmed that Grant had received my email about the revocation issue that I sent 2 days ago and that he will be resolving this critical issue in the next couple of days by filing the appropriate paperwork with the state of New Mexico, and this paperwork will also remove me as President of the Foundation."

cyclops please take *more time* to read others posts more *carefully* and *understand* what they talk about...

Let's face it, Gentoo = Portage. OK, it was fun for a while, I guess it made some people get closer to their Linux and some feel more in control and placebo'ed some into feeling they get a "faster" and more "stable" install in return.


and i asked him
Can you explain to us why is it a fake feeling that you get far more control and speed tuning with gentoo?


i hope you understand the difference between a question and a statement.

now ontopic...
*meta-distribution*+*cutting-edge*+*stability*+*maintainability*

from all this things just the meta nature is more or less intact.

cutting edge? like what? kde4? is it in portage? even stable releases by upstream take too long to get in portage (not even think about alpha/beta/rc releases).

stability is connected with maintainability and both are analogous with how many developers are working in the project. Now consider how many developers have resigned and keep resigning. Some herds are depending on 1 or 2 developers ffs...
Please don't get me wrong, of course i want to see my distro of choise to prosper but there are so many issues while trustees the only thing they care about is how to resolve the foundation...
like they are working hard to make the distro how it was and don't have time for the paperwork...oh please...
