Gentoo Public Relations Project
Extending and improving a meta-distribution such as Gentoo isn't possible
without the continued involvement of the users. Apart from the bug reporting,
enhancement requests, mailing list/IRC activity and other important aspects,
the motivation of the users is one of, perhaps even the most, influential facet
of distribution activity. Such motivation can be brought to the users by
well-coordinated public relation efforts.
PR goes well beyond just "informing the world". It embraces research, planning,
communication and evaluation manufactured to the organisation's core values. It
does not stop with explaining the virtues of the organisation and the decisions
made, but also extends to uncovering the principles that are used to go where
the organisation wants to go.

project has the following subprojects:
||The Website Team strives to improve the Gentoo website(s).
||It is vital that Gentoo-presentations and -folders contain correct information and are updated with the most recent information available. This subproject writes and maintains presentations, folders and other material that users and developers can safely use to promote or demonstrate Gentoo.
||Several sites (and other media) exist that occasionally talk about Gentoo using (submitted or self-written) articles. This subproject maintains a list of all available Gentoo articles and updates the several press media about Gentoo.
||The Gentoo Weekly Newsletter informs the Gentoo userbase (and other interested parties) about the latest evolvements in Gentoo with a weekly publication.
||The Free Software Community is colored with many happenings and events. Very important on such events is the availability of the major players, including distributions. This subproject tries to cover all events where Gentoo can present itself.

||The Gentoo User Relations Subproject offers a point of contact between the development and user communities.
