Introduction

"Gentoo" is many things. It is a community-based distribution of Linux. It is a package management philosophy. It is also a non-profit organization. This document is designed to get you in touch with the right group within Gentoo, so your correspondence can be handled as quickly as possible.

For information regarding upcoming events, interviews, general questions, or simply just to find out more about Gentoo and Gentoo's products, you will likely want to speak with someone from Gentoo's Public Relations project.

Important: The Public Relations team does not provide user support or troubleshooting. If you need help with your Gentoo system, please visit our forums, IRC channels or other support venues.

For information about donations, The Gentoo Foundation, or anything else related to Gentoo intellectual property, trademarks, and copyrights, you will likely want to speak to the Gentoo Foundation's Board of Trustees.

For information regarding this website, or any other Gentoo website hosted on a gentoo.org domain (but not a document or guide), you will likely want to speak with Gentoo's Webmasters. For documentation issues, please file a bug.

If you are looking for support on Gentoo Linux or any other Gentoo product or project, then you should head over to our support page for further information.

Public Relations

The Gentoo Public Relations project, and its Events subproject are responsible for putting the word out about Gentoo, as well as coordinating the Gentoo presence within the community at at trade shows and exhibitions.

The Gentoo Foundation Board of Trustees

The Gentoo Foundation is a non-profit organization that was formed to be the protector of Gentoo's intellectual property. The Board of Trustees are the elected keepers of the legal entity that is Gentoo within the United States. If your question is financial or legal in nature, then you will want to send an email to trustees@gentoo.org and a member of the board will get back to you as soon as possible.

Webmasters

Maintaining Gentoo's presence on the web is a daunting task. Gentoo has a dedicated team of webmasters who keep our site looking sharp and up-to-date. If you have a question or comment about any Gentoo web site, then this team is what you are looking for. They can be contacted by sending an email to www@gentoo.org.

Important: Do not contact the webmasters for documentation issues. If you find a document in http://www.gentoo.org/doc/ that needs attention, please file a bug on Gentoo's bug tracker.
