I teach an introductory course in embedded development at the Northern Alberta 
Institute of Technology.  The NETdimm boards we use are a good fit 
hardware-wise, but the SDK is a bit antiquated (uClinux 2.0).  Package 
management is also currently basically tarballs and makefiles.  I'd like to 
see (say for next summer) a better solution.  I should add that the 
manufacturers of my board are planning on shipping an updated SDK soon, but 
I'd still like to explore using an embedded gentoo solution in my classes.

Once we have a base system up (cross compilers, toolchain, and basic fs), I'll 
start looking at some of the other things.  I'll be happy to start 
contributing ebuilds for the things I want - like very low-footprint httpd, 
stuff from the uClinux userland collection, etc.  Will give me an excuse to 
learn more about creating ebuilds.

Love it.  Was all tingly and excited after the online meeting.
