Gentoo distribution sub-forum?


Hi, currently, I'm a huge fun of gentoo. Its ability to compile and find all the required packages is amazing! I noticed that under the Linux - Distributions forum, thre isn't a sub-forum specificely for gentoo.

I'd really appreciate it if a sub-forum for gentoo could be added it.

In case you're feeling lazy, if I remember rightly, the subforums here are sponsored by the distro, or someone else who feels like sponsoring the distribution. I think Gentoo decided that they already have a forum, and thus didn't need one here.

In other words, don't dis LQ, don't dis gentoo

They decided not to be involved in a LQ subforum.

FWIW, it's not a matter of "sponsorship", just a matter of official (on some level) participation. I think a Gentoo forum here at LQ could be quite beneficial to them despite the active forum they have, and they are of course more than welcome here at LQ. The final decision though is completely up to them.
