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. - -- Mansour Moufid -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Use GnuPG with Firefox : (Version: 0.7.5) iEYEARECAAYFAkowGLUACgkQ83JwsZW7wl+FbgCfUREih6vKiNtVvRIGrO02BCB9 VnoAoIJ/r7h4uzdEO/v3WPVQ17rKX9Cx =1Kdq -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
