gentoo.org: Release Engineering team members are in the planning stages for 2008.0, and they want your help! Is there anything you'd like to see added, changed or removed from Gentoo's release media?
gentoo.org: A comprehensive testing checklist will be developed on the gentoo-releng mailing list, as will a list of which details of testers' machines and environments they should turn in to developers.
Gentoo's Release Engineering team will hold a meeting at 2000 UTC Wednesday, Jan. 23. The team plans to discuss several topics, including the upcoming 2008.0 release and how to involve the community more in the release process. An open floor Q&A session will follow the moderated portion of the meeting. To attend, just join #gentoo-releng on irc.freenode.net!
Daniel Robbins: I am left to interpret Grant's response as a "No" answer to my offer as it was originally presented to the trustees. It appears that Grant is making an effort to tackle Foundation legal issues by pro-actively renewing the Foundation's charter.
tsunam.org: I am of the opinion that Gentoo should not contract the SFC to manage the Foundation. I am of the opinion that Gentoo should welcome the return of Daniel Robbins, but in a somewhat more limited sense than his recent offer.

The inaugural issue of the Gentoo Monthly Newsletter has been released. In this month's issue: Planet Gentoo roundup, updates on the ATI driver, event announcements and more!
We're not in any way related to the Gentoo Weekly Newsletter (GWN) or as it is known now, the GMN. Although inverting the W to be a more grounded M is a radical step and gives the acronym a much more youthful and dynamic look we don't like it that much. An "O" would have made it look much rounder and mature. Also, adding a small "e" at the end would have made it look much more Web 2.0 and stuff. And who can claim that "GONe" is a bad acronym?
grantgoodyear.org: I spent some time this week talking to the Foundation's lawyers, collecting documents, and sifting through old e-mails. Having the Foundation's charter revoked is exceptionally embarrassing, but not catastrophic. The state of NM has a straightforward procedure for reinstating a revoked charter.

And: Gentoo kernel project contributors
mpagano.com: Yes, Gentoo has some issues concerning the Gentoo foundation. Yes, we are actively working on straightening out these issues. No, Gentoo is not dying.
