Gentoo Weekly Newsletter


1. Gentoo Weekly Newsletter Overview

The Gentoo Weekly Newsletter is intended to give users of Gentoo one source of information about Gentoo. The GWN summarizes the key events in the Gentoo project each week and presents them in a clear, concise format. With sections covering general news, security, bugs, portage and other topics, the GWN should offer something for everyone. The current version of the GWN can always be found here.

Currently, the GWN is distributed via web and mailing list formats, with additional formats being considered based on your feedback. To subscribe to the GWN mailing list, send a blank email to [email protected]. You can also monitor our feed. The GWN will also be available in other languages, as volunteers step forth to translate.

Note: GWN mailing list subscribers: Please note that the GWN is not currently being mailed. We hope to return this service to our subscribers pending the ability to automate the process.

Finally, we'd like to thank the many volunteers who make the GWN possible on a weekly basis. From the contributors to the translators to the people behind the scenes, all these people help bring you the GWN. If you're interested in joining the GWN team, please send an email to [email protected].

4. Gentoo Weekly Newsletter Mini-FAQ

Why don't you offer the GWN in <some language>?

The GWN is translated into different languages based on volunteers willing to do the translations. If you'd like to help with translating the GWN into a specific language (even one that's already offered) please contact us at [email protected]. Given that the GWN is a weekly publication and can often be quite long, we prefer to have multiple people working on the same language translation. This helps distribute the workload and ensures translations aren't disrupted by people going on holiday.

How do I subscribe or unsubscribe from the GWN mailing list?
