I have to agree with Daniel here. This list is very low traffic. If you want
to reach a broad part of the gentoo community, I think the Gentoo forums
could be the way to go. ( ). As for the performance
tests, I don't think either that the server world would give you a lot of
differences in terms of performance whether you're using Gentoo or a popular
server-oriented binary distro.

Just my 2 cents...
