Gentoo: A critical look at the QA process

Filed under
Gentoo

blog.jolexa.net: The QA team has said that there is some sort of “policy” on masking packages that break reverse dependencies. I’ll subscribe that that policy for the sake of not breaking users machines on purpose, however, let’s take a look at the current case study:

Gentoo

2indya.com: Gentoo is one of the most talked and noted Linux distributions that have been in active development stage for last 6-7 years.

Should we be lesser GNUs?

Gentoo

gentoo.org: Larry the cow is our prized mascot and he is not getting the respect he deserves. Just about every other Linux distribution, their mascot is adorned on t-shirts and other types of schwag, but not our Larry, he cannot even decide his gender. Please help up fix this.

Broken every other week

Filed under
Gentoo

blog.flameeyes.eu: I’m seriously disappointed in Gentoo; even after my last post on the topic the Gentoo quality seems to be on a downward spiral, rather than climbing up. The problem is social: too many developers don’t give a f*ck.

Huawei CEO: Will keep using Android as long as it's open

Interestingly, he didn't say anything about whether or not Huawei is developing an in-house mobile OS - said to be called Kirin OS.
