Gentoo for Pandora Down, but not Out

A recent comment in a previous post (I have readers!?) reminded me to update my blog with the latest on Gentoo for Pandora.

First of all, some good news: our first truly working, truly stable release is out, v0.0.3.

Besides that, though, we’ve decided to work Gentoo Embedded into our strategy. viridior and I had a chat over Skype, and viridior pointed out that our project really isn’t replaced, because Gentoo Embedded never plans (or doesn’t appear to be planning) to provide support for further additions beyond a simple stage3 build. Indeed, Gentoo Embedded has a broad focus: bring Gentoo to embedded platforms. Our focus will be on the Pandora, so we’ll be able to provide more “specialized” documentation and support through our project.

Also, another thing viridior pointed out is Gentoo Embedded is more or less doing us a favor by taking the responsibility of the base variants (the images we use to build all the other images) off our shoulders. All we’ll have to do is grab the latest stage3 and we’re already halfway home. 😉

So, all thanks to viridior, I’m back on my feet, and the project continues to move along!
