Becoming a Gentoo Security developer

How to join the team

To participate in the Gentoo Linux Security Project first join the mailing list at gentoo-security@gentoo.org and sign yourself up a Bugzilla account . You may be able to talk to one of our security developers and/or users in the IRC channel #gentoo-security on irc.freenode.net for more information or just to chat about the security state of existing projects.

The Padawans page explains the entire recruitment process in full detail.

If you want to help us with the creation and coordination of GLSAs, you should read the GLSA Coordinators Guide to see what it takes to be a GLSA Coordinator.

Note
If you don't have the ability to actively help by contributing work we will always need testers to maintain the security and stability of the overall project. All development, testing, and productive comments and feedback is greatly appreciated.
