Gentoo Weekly Newsletter


1.  Project Description

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 Linux 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 The GWN will also be available in other languages, as volunteers step forth to translate.

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
