The goals of the LXDE project are to provide users the needed packages to install LXDE on their Gentoo system, to handle their bugs and other requests, to keep up-to-date with LXDE upstream development, and to support LXDE and related packages in Gentoo in order to give users the best possible desktop experience. The project also strives to write and maintain 'live' ebuilds in an official LXDE overlay.
