GDP Status Report


1.  Status Reports


This is the status of the Gentoo Documentation Project. It will be posted regularly, but not with a static frequency. All questions can be posted to or to me personally.

The Gentoo Documentation Project, from now on abbreviated to GDP, has its own project page (just like almost all other Gentoo projects). You can find it at


This status mail will briefly discuss the following tasks, objectives and/or projects related to the GDP:

2.  New / Updated Documentation

The Gentoo Apache Project has asked us to migrate their documents under our supervision, which we of course gladly did. You can now find the following three documents in the documentation resources:

Sven Vermeulen has written a Gentoo Sudo(ers) Guide for all those who gotten a use sudo answer on #gentoo :)

The Gentoo Home Router Guide has been extended with some troubleshooting information.

Thanks to Chris White we now have a MySQL Howto as well.

Marcel Holtmann, Ioannis Aslanidis, Shyam Mani and Douglas Russell wrote a Bluetooth Guide.

The Gentoo/FreeBSD team has delivered a short guide to Gentoo/FreeBSD.

The Gentoo/MIPS team has provided the GDP with a Gentoo/MIPS FAQ.

Of course, we shouldn't forget all the updates to the other guides, such as spelling and grammar fixes and bugfixes that were reported to Bugzilla.

An overview of all fixed bugreports since the last status update can be found on Gentoo's bugtracking system.

3.  Additional Articles

A few additional articles have been GuideXMLified and put on our web site:

4.  Gentoo 2005.1 Released

With the 2005.1 release, the Gentoo Documentation Project has updated the current Handbooks to use the new release media. We also have uploaded the Gentoo 2005.1 Handbooks for those who want to perform a networkless Gentoo installation (using stage3 and GRP if they so wish).
