Ehh... The GPL doesn't say that *Gentoo* has to do something. Yes, as an individual, one has the right to take Gentoo's software and do Their Own Thing(tm) with it, so long as they follow the GPL. However, that does not mean that Gentoo itself has to have any part in it. -- Chris Gianelloni Release Engineering Strategic Lead Alpha/AMD64/x86 Architecture Teams Games Developer/Council Member/Foundation Trustee Gentoo Foundation
