Filed under
Gentoo

1. Introduction

This month in the GMN

The inaugural issue of the Gentoo Monthly Newsletter has been released. The GMN replaces the Gentoo Weekly Newsletter, and hopes to bring you more consistent, high-quality articles on happenings in and around the Gentoo Community. The format of the GMN will remain more or less the same as the older weekly newsletter, but we are actively seeking volunteers with more ideas on how to improve the content and presentation. The GMN is what its readers want it to be - please see the section on how you can get involved - at the end of the newsletter for more information.

We hope you enjoy reading the GMN, and look forward to receiving your feedback!
