News and information from Gentoo Linux
  1. As you may know the core of sys-kernel/hardened-sources has been the grsecurity patches. Recently the grsecurity developers have decided to limit access to these patches. As a result, the Gentoo Hardened team is unable to ensure a regular patching schedule and therefore the security of the users of these kernel sources. Thus, we will be masking hardened-sources on the 27th of August and will proceed to remove them from the main ebuild repository by the end of September. We recommend to use sys-kernel/gentoo-sources instead. Userspace hardening and support for SELinux will of course remain in the Gentoo ebuild repository. Please see the full news item for additional information and links.

    Upcoming weekend, 19-20th August 2017, there will be a Gentoo booth again at the FrOSCon “Free and Open Source Conference” 12, in St. Augustin near Bonn! Visitors can see Gentoo live in action, get Gentoo swag, and prepare, configure, and compile their own Gentoo buttons. See you there!

  4. FOSDEM 2017 logo

    On February, 4th and 5th, Gentoo will be attending FOSDEM 2017 in Brussels, Belgium.

    This year one of our own, Jason A Donenfeld (zx2c4), will be speaking on WireGuard: a next generation secure kernel network tunnel.

    Similar to last year, the event will be hosted at Université libre de Bruxelles. Gentoo developers will be taking rotating shifts at the Gentoo stand with gadgets, swag, and a new 2017 LiveDVD. You can visit this wiki article to see which developer will be manning the stand when you drop by.

    We are looking forward to seeing those in the community who have been hard at work on their quizzes!

  5. The Gentoo project mourns the loss of Jonathan Portnoy, better known amongst us as Jon, or avenj.

    Jon was an active member of the International Gentoo community, almost since its founding in 1999. He was still active until his last day.

    His passing has struck us deeply and with disbelief. We all remember him as a vivid and enjoyable person, easy to reach out to and energetic in all his endeavors.

    On behalf of the entire Gentoo Community, all over the world, we would like to convey our deepest sympathy for his family and friends. As per his wishes, the Gentoo Foundation has made a donation in his memory to the Perl Foundation.

    Please join the community in remembering Jon on our forums.
