I'm starting to put together a portage/stable server configuration for a large
number of gentoo VM's that will eventually be hosted on a VMware ESX 4.1U1
cluster - with the goal of limiting major changes to once/year and otherwise
only applying security/minimum necessary updates. I doubt it will be easy but
I'm doing my best at it :)
As part of that I'm maintaining on github several related repositories,
including portage mask/use/config files, cluster management utilities, etc.
I've also started to document work on my blog:
I'm not currently planning to utilize a separate overlay for packages/ebuilds,
but it's not out of the question.
I'd be happy to work with any other devs w/ similiar interests or production
networks to manage.....github makes group development relatively easy.
