We produce Gentoo Linux, a special flavor of Linux that can be automatically optimized and customized for just about any application or need. Extreme performance, configurability and a top-notch user and developer community are all hallmarks of the Gentoo experience. To learn more, read our about page.
Service relaunch: archives.gentoo.org
The Gentoo Infrastructure team is proud to announce that we have re-engineered the mailing list archives, and re-launched it, back at archives.gentoo.org. The prior Mhonarc-based system had numerous problems, and a complete revamp was deemed the best forward solution to move forward with. The new system is powered by ElasticSearch (more features to come).
All existing URLs should either work directly, or redirect you to the new location for that content.
Major thanks to Alex Legler, for his development of this project.
Note that we're still doing some catchup on newer messages, but delays will drop to under 2 hours soon, with an eventual goal of under 30 minutes.

Gentoo Linux releases the 20140826 LiveDVD - Iron Penguin Edition
Gentoo Linux is proud to announce the availability of a new LiveDVD to celebrate the continued collaboration between Gentoo users and developers, The LiveDVD features a superb list of packages, some of which are listed below.
The LiveDVD is available in two flavors: a hybrid x86/x86_64 version, and an x86_64 multi lib version. The livedvd-x86-amd64-32ul-20140826 version will work on 32-bit x86 or 64-bit x86_64. If your CPU architecture is x86, then boot with the default gentoo kernel. If your arch is amd64, boot with the gentoo64 kernel. This means you can boot a 64-bit kernel and install a customized 64-bit user land while using the provided 32-bit user land. The livedvd-amd64-multilib-20140826 version is for x86_64 only.

Action required: Password reset on all Gentoo services
Recent versions of OpenSSL were found to be affected by an information disclosure vulnerability related to TLS heartbeats, nicknamed Heartbleed. It allows attackers to read up to 64kb of random server memory, possibly including passwords, session IDs or even private keys.
After the public disclosure on April 7, we have confirmed that several services provided by Gentoo Infrastructure were vulnerable as well. We have immediately updated the affected software, recreated private keys, reissued certificates, and invalidated all running user sessions. Despite these measures, we cannot exclude the possibility of attackers exploiting the issue during the time it was not publicly known to gain access to credentials or session IDs of our users. There are currently no indications this has happened.
However, to be safe, we are asking you to reset your passwords used for Gentoo services within the next 7 days. You need to take action if you have an account on one of the following sites:
After 7 days, we will be removing all passwords to avoid abuse. For more information and the full announcement, visit http://infra-status.gentoo.org/notice/20140413-heartbleed.
