I make.

Ideally in the underused Presentation Listing in the PR projspace:

http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/pr/docs/presentation-listing.xml

We can do the GuideXML for the list; just send us the file(s) and license(s) 
used so that we can host 'em on g.o.

    For then there will be great distress, unequaled
    from the beginning of the world until now — and never

[gentoo-dev] 'State of Gentoo' BoF session, Linux Symposium 2010.

2010-07-09 Thread Robin H. Johnson
Hi all,

I had hoped to send this before now, but the exact scheduled timeslot keeps
changing. It was already on the PR events calendar.

I'm running a BoF session during the Linux Symposium 2010 in Ottawa next week,
entitled 'State of Gentoo'.

http://www.linuxsymposium.org/2010/view_abstract.php?content_key=75
Extract:
=
What's the present state of Gentoo Linux? $DISTRO is dying, long live $DISTRO.
What drives this perception of distribution status? Is it FUD, or is it a sign
of a larger problem?

This BoF will cover recent developments and activities in the Gentoo realm,
with a focus on the core distribution and services provided by the developers,
Gentoo Infrastructure as well as the technical and legal administrativa (Gentoo
Council and Gentoo Foundation).

Questions about progress on specific topics are warmly welcomed.
=

Any other Gentoo users/developers attending?

Good to know something useful is happening in our capital this year (grin).

There is still a serious misperception out there among non-users
that Gentoo is about performance.  This needs to be corrected:
I believe we all use it for the choice  control it offers.

Perhaps there's also a disadvantage in that Gentoo doesn't receive
the commercial publicity behind Ubuntu, Fedora  Suse,
nor does it have the ancient history of Slackware  Debian.

I continue to be as happy a user as I have always been since 2003 .
