Project listing


Gentoo Containers aims to simplify and standardize Gentoo usage pertaining to containers. The Gentoo Containers team provide automatically generated, minimal container images for a variety of formats (i.e. Docker, LMCTFY, LXC) and architectures using Gentoo as the base system. This allows users of the containers to have a good and trustworthy starting point from which to build their application specific containers. The resulting container images will be smaller with less chance for problems.
