The Gentoo Council

Filed under
Gentoo

The Gentoo Council is a group of elected Gentoo Developers that are elected on a yearly basis by the developer body as a whole for the purpose of deciding on global issues and policies which affect the Gentoo Linux Distro as a whole or part. The Gentoo Council serves as the technical oversight to the the entire project. We are charged with representing the will of the developer body, while maintaining the best interest for Gentoo and it’s user base. In effect, the Gentoo Council derives its authority from the developer body, this is what differentiates it from the Gentoo Foundation, which handles the financial side of Gentoo.

Gentoo Council meetings are bi-monthly for 1-hour sessions. These sessions are always held publicly on IRC on Freenode in #gentoo-council at 2000 UTC on the 2nd and 4th Thursday’s of the month (with the exception of major holidays). We welcome all interested parties to come join us.
