Opengear donates two CM4008
---------------------------

Opengear[1] has shown its generous side to Gentoo once again. Last year,
Opengear donated two CM4008 console servers[2] and followed up with yet
another CM4008 this year. If you're not familiar, these console servers
provide secure access to serial and network consoles, allowing
infrastructure to monitor and control servers and switches remotely, from
anywhere and at any time. These have been a great resource for
infrastructure[3] and the developer community. Thank you for your donations
Opengear!

New Gentoo Project: Xfce
------------------------

Gentoo's Xfce project[4] gained it's official Gentoo project status, thanks
to Joshua Saddler[5] and Joshua Nichols[6]. What's coming up next for the
Xfce Project? There is an open stabilization bug[7] for the Xfce Desktop
Environment 4.4.0 and architecture team sign off on a list of stabilization
and keyword bugs.

2. Developer of the Week
========================

"I sacrifice my x86 hardware on the altar of source-built distros!" - Joshua
Saddler, nightmorph
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Figure 2.1: Joshua Saddler, aka nightmorph
http://www.gentoo.org/images/gwn/20070305_nightmorph.jpg

Joshua Saddler, also known as nightmorph, is this week's featured developer.
He is 24 years old and resides in San Diego, CA, which is in the South-West
of the US, next to the Mexican border. Josh lives with his wife Melanie;
they celebrate eight months of marriage - congrats!

In 2005, Josh graduated college with a degree in theater. He has always been
into art, theater, and music classes; so much so that he's been playing the
piano for 16 years.

In his free time, Josh likes to read, write, listen to music and browse the
local bookshops. Josh's love of literature is obvious. He currently works as
a librarian and worked in a bookshop prior to that. Though he's shy to admit
it, Joshua's poetry has been published. When he's reading, which is whenever
he can find time, it will probably be a fantasy novel. His favorite authors
are Timothy Zahn, David Weber, and J.R.R. Tolkien. Josh likes
chill/world/ethereal music, though he enjoys a wide range of music types,
which goes from jazz to rock, even to classical. Like any good developer, he
also enjoys relaxing with a good online fragfest: UT2004 on his AMD64!

Josh started using Linux after seeing a friend using Linspire. After a lot
of research, he found his favorite Linux flavor: Gentoo. Some time later,
after wondering how he could give back to Gentoo, he decided to help with
the Gentoo Documentation Project[8], since he isn't into programming. Josh
joined the documentation team and contributes documentation for other
projects in need. His documentation skills have been put to good use for
various teams, including the newly formed Xfce project. Josh reflects on the
last two years of being a developer from his being mentored by Shyam Mani[9]
to his recent contributions on his blog post[10].

When Josh's AMD64 workstation boots, he opts for a GNOME session and the
following applications: gnome-terminal, audacious, Firefox, Thunderbird,
gvim, irssi, mplayer for movies and k3b for writing discs. Also of
noteworthy mention is his laptop, a vintage 2001 Toshiba that has burned out
two hard drives, various sticks of ram, and even a memory slot whilst
compiling Gentoo over the last few years!

3. Gentoo International
=======================

Belgium: Free Open Source Software Developers European Meeting, Brussels
------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you weren't one of the fifty plus Gentoo developers that came to FOSDEM
this year, here's what you missed out on! FOSDEM'ers met up Friday evening
at Le Roy d'Espagne, on the Grand Place for a traditional pre-FOSDEM beer.
Did I mention the FOSDEM tab exceeded 5,000 Euro? Gentoo developers, users,
and a few admirers enjoyed an elegant dinner at Restaurant Roma Saturday
evening. In typical developer fashion, the elegant dinner was followed up by
a round of good old fashioned Brussels bar hopping.

How about the event itself? The Gentoo booth boasted a handsome display of
developer boxes to include a HPPA C3600 and several EFIKA setups - touch
screens, gaming boxes, and more. Gentoo talks, talks, and more talks. Some
might say the devroom talks were the hit of the Gentoo presence. The chairs
were not only full for every Gentoo talk, but virtually every talk left
little to no standing room. While FOSDEM 2007 was definitely a success, the
Gentoo Events project is already working on ways to make it bigger and
better in 2008 - hope to see you there!

Germany: Chemnitzer Linux-Tage, Chemnitz
----------------------------------------

The third year in a row, Gentoo Linux presented a booth at the Linux-Tage in
Chemnitz, Germany. On March 3rd and 4th, developers Wernfried Haas[15],
Hanno Boeck[16] and Robert Buchholz[17], former developer Jan Seidel (tuxus)
and Mr. Big had the opportunity to chat with users and discuss the
distribution, as well as see beyond their own noses by visiting the close-by
Debian, Ubuntu or Fedora booths. Besides getting stickers and case badges,
some of the 2700 visitors of the "Linux days" could see a Gentoo
cross-compile installation[18] on MIPS and installations on a ppc-iBook and
on a x86-notebook.

called The Gentoo Metadistribution[19] (slides in German).

Copenhagen, Linuxforum 07, Denmark
----------------------------------

The annual Linuxforum event[20], held in Copenhagen, is one of the largest
events in Northern Europe. This year's venue received over 2,900 visitors!
The Gentoo booth was covered by developers: Stefan Cornelius[21], Sune
Kloppenborg[22], Thilo Bangert[23] and Alexander Færøy[24]. Alexander gave a
speech on Gentoo, making strong points about choice, compiling by source,
and why Gentoo has such a great community.

This section lists packages that have either been moved or added to the tree
