Who Cares?

I mean, if the Gentoo community wants to eat their own, then let them. There's way too many Linux distros anyway, and it's time there was some consolidation of the effort in order to more effectively challenge MS.

Who needs another vanity distro?

I'm a gentoo user, and so far no other distribution has kept me so satisfied as gentoo.

OTOH there is no crisis for gentoo ATM despite some blog coverage. This is especially true for the community. You should see the many posts in gentoo-user about this. yup.. 0 posts... nada. That's so much this crisis is. Nada.

If we were talking about another repackaged Ubuntu, glossier Debian or localised Fedora I'd agree wholeheartedly.

I'm not a Gentoo user but appreciate its uniqueness amongst a sea of Deb/RH clone distros. Definitely one worth saving!

A contradiction, squabbles lead to forking which leads to ever more distributions, not less.

I'm not even going to bother trying to counter the "There are too many Linux distributions, we need One Linux Distribution To Bind Them All" argument.

Instead, I'm going to ask: When (not if) those putting forth the argument are proven wrong, will you FINALLY eat humble pie?

I'm not betting on it.
