Gentoo Fork

Zachary T. Welch has annouced a fork of Gentoo Linux. Thanks Spunz.

I am proud to announce that The Zynot Foundation was registered today as a 501.c.3 member controlled, non-profit organization in the state of Oregon. This new entity is being established to hold a fork of the Gentoo Linux distribution, targeting embedded and enterprise users and developers. We will be establishing a new development culture suitable for creating a reliable, validated, and production-ready distribution - initially using the Gentoo technology we all have come to know and love.

While I am currently leading this effort, I have already attracted a number of others willing to help me guide this project through its initial growing pains. In the next couple of months, I expect this project to evolve as truly community run organization, and we will be drafting the foundation's bylaws out in the open, accepting input from the community thoughout the entire process.
