Gentoo Hardened Support State

Content:

1.  Introduction

The Gentoo Hardened project aims to support as many platforms as possible. However, this aim is restrained as we do not have access to as many platforms that we want (nor do we have the resources to work on all these platforms). As a result, support for the individual subprojects becomes limited to those platforms that we have access and resources to.

This document gives an overview of the supported platforms and, if necessary, elaborates on the specific requirements in order to work with one of Gentoo Hardened's subprojects. Note that each subproject has its own support matrix, based on upstream support (which platforms are supported by the technology) and Gentoo Hardened (for which platforms can we run tests and validate users' reports and feedback).
