ROCK-esque "distro", but not ROCK?

Last week I was looking at a site by someone who used to work for the (B)LFS project, but who split (I think?) to concentrate on less of the LFS hand-holding style of from-source and more on the automation aspect. Now, I know ROCK is very much this style, but I am positive what i was looking at wasn't ROCK!

Needless to say, I cannot seem to find this site *anywhere* and I'm sure I clicked on a link from a post in here. I can't find the post, either, but it's equally likely it was someone's signature!

I remember the site being orange, with a menu on the left. "Didn't you used to work for LFS?" was one of the FAQs, and on the frontpage there was a major statement about "The work going into this is for the script automation, you should already have good knowledge of toolchain technology" or similar ... likewise, he wanted remote access to a amd64-bit box to build on to test x86_64 bit ports.

I'm hoping someone here remembers what site this is and will please please please put me out of my misery!

Yours, mystified,
- Piete.
