<div>Well welcome to the project. Just for your information if you want to get a hold of the developers quickly, it is best to use irc, server <a href="http://irc.freenode.net">irc.freenode.net</a> on channel #gentoo-installer.

<blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="PADDING-LEFT: 1ex; MARGIN: 0px 0px 0px 0.8ex; BORDER-LEFT: #ccc 1px solid">1. GLI seems missing a step to set locale and XIM input method, which is very<br>important for non-English spoken people. Sure, you can set it yourself like
<br>what I did. But for GLI, is that suppose to be taken care automatically?</blockquote>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<div>The GLI is designed to have a frontend and a backend. Right now the only frontends we have written are done by english speaking developers. As such, to be honest there hasn't been much work done in the realm of translations. However before GLI is released to users, those layers will be added.

<blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="PADDING-LEFT: 1ex; MARGIN: 0px 0px 0px 0.8ex; BORDER-LEFT: #ccc 1px solid">2. Reiserfs ans XFT support. We developed our own installer called Magic<br>Installer(very close to GLI), which support Reiserfs (even Reiserfs4) and XFT
<br>for partition. Since I haven't spend much time on GLI, i would like to try to<br>solve this problem for GLI in the future.</blockquote><br>&nbsp;</div>
<div>We will welcome all the code contributions. For the partitioning code, be sure to talk with the developers on irc concerning that. It has gone through quite a few revisions recently.</div>

<blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="PADDING-LEFT: 1ex; MARGIN: 0px 0px 0px 0.8ex; BORDER-LEFT: #ccc 1px solid">3. Can GLI build an ISO (CD/DVD) automatically? MI use &quot;scons&quot; to do that.</blockquote><br>&nbsp;</div>
</div>
<div>That is not the focus of the GLI project. Our job is to build the installer. Release engineering builds the livecds. However if you wish to build Gentoo Livecds, I would look into catalyst. <a href="http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/releng/catalyst/">
