1. Project Description
Gentoo/Alt is a top-level project that manages efforts to support alternate Gentoo platforms and runtime environments. In many ways, gentoo-alt represents the "cutting edge" work that is being done to expand the capabilities and potential of Gentoo in general.
The gentoo-alt project has the following subprojects:
|bsd||The_Paya||Porting of Gentoo facilities on BSD systems|
|Android||heroxbd||Running Gentoo natively in a directory prefix in parallel to Android.|
|Gentoo/Alt ATs||The Gentoo/Alt AT project is devoted to helping developers with timeconsuming testing.|
3. Project tasks
The tasks of the gentoo-alt project are:
Tech documentation - A complete documentation for developers
To avoid that the missing of one of the devs makes difficult maintaining the project, all the technical documentation about Gentoo/Alt projects must be written and published, so that they are available to whoever wants to help.
Alternate Prefix - Support for alternate prefixes for portage (finished)
To get Gentoo/Alt projects working on platforms where you are not able to change what is installed in base system (closed-source systems, for instance), a solution is to add support for alternate prefix installation in portage.
