AFAIK, you don't certify for a distribution vendor, but for a certain
fixed distribution. So you can say software X is certified for Fedora
Core rc2, SuSE Professional 9.2 and Debian 3.0. But gentoo is (and
that's part of its beauty) a moving target, and therefore you never can
say if X will work on it (what about the next glibc update, for example).
Maybe this will change with the introduction of the hypothetical
server/ultra stable tier, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
