That's a shame. I get the impression Gentoo is geared toward the
security crowd, or rather, more so than other distributions I've come
across.

Yes, exactly. This is the type of project I've been looking to get
involved in anyway, so it made sense to try to do so within the
framework of Gentoo. : )

How much time would members typically put in, say, per week? I imagine
it's difficult to estimate an 'average' -- since most of the time
spent is probably in actually reviewing source code -- but I'm looking
forward to contributing a decent number of hours a week as part of
this project. Effort is certainly no deterrent.
