blog.flameeyes.eu: While Gentoo often gets a bad name because of the so-called ricers and upstream developer complains that we allow users to shoot themselves in the foot by setting CFLAGS as they please, it has to be said that not all upstream projects are good in that regard.
ben.liveforge.org: After the mostly positive feedback on the recent wiki discussion, we have now gone ahead, formed a preliminary team consisting of both users and developers, and put up a project page.

blog.flameeyes.eu: I’ve been accused by some people of being more interested in creating “followers” than in the wellness of Gentoo. This really did make me unhappy; not only it’s definitely not the case, but that hits my very nerves.
convolutedtheory.com: Compiling everything from scratch is awesome for home users, but when you administer hundreds of servers IT SUCKS. Yes, you can set up a binary repository. No, it's not easy.
blogs.gentoo.org/nightmorph: I'd say we had the most diverse assortment of machines at any booth -- something like 10 different machines on 5 architectures. Certainly we had a bunch of developers; we haven't had a showing like this since SCALE 5x.
blog.hartwork.org: I’ve been playing with matplotlib and Gentoo bug numbers from the last ~6 month to be able to see how we are performing at fixing bugs lately. This is the current output:
With Sabayon fever reaching boiling point I have some cool news to break to you all, which, as you have guessed from the title is that Sabayon 5.2 will ship with 2.6.33 Kernel with Con Kolivas 1 (ck1) 2.6.33 desktop performance patches (including BFS).
blog.flameeyes.eu: Yesterday I snapped and declared my intent to resign from Gentoo. Why did that happen? Well, it’s a huge mix of problems, all joined together by one common factor: no matter how much work I pour into getting Gentoo working like it should be, more problems are generated by sloppy work from at least one or two developers.
wonkabar.org: There was an interesting thread I read in the forums this morning that was talking about the general process of stabling software. Got me thinking about the distribution as a whole, and why I like it, and why I keep coming back to it. In short, why I freaking love Gentoo.
