14 If you don't think that you can host it yourself, then sourceforce would
15 probably be a good place. If there's enough interest in it, it could
16 very likely become an official Gentoo project. Even without an
17 "official" status, it could be added to the tree.
19 > c) Would something like this merit becoming a Gentoo Hosted Project?
21 As far as I know, no. It would become a "Gentoo Project", not a "Gentoo
22 Hosted Project". As far as I can tell, the difference is that a hosted
23 project, while Gentoo-written and maintained, is capable of running on
24 non-Gentoo machines. For example, both catalyst and genkernel are
25 "Gentoo Hosted Projects" and are able to be run on non-Gentoo machines
26 just fine.
28 > d) Is this something for a GLEP?
30 This isn't an enhancement for Gentoo Linux, but a separate project. The
31 only reason for a GLEP is to change how things in Gentoo work. Adding a
32 package never requires a GLEP.

37 I think it would be a good idea.
39 How comprehensive is this? Is this something like a cPanel/Plesk clone
40 or is it simpler than that?

47 Well, since I can't think of anything technical. You stink. ;]
