Project listing

The Gentoo HPPA project is designed to bring the Gentoo GNU/Linux operating system to the HP Precision Architecture platforms. We aim to provide a usable computing environment for your various HPPA related endeavors. Since hardware graphics support for Linux is rare in HPPA computers, the project focuses on server usage.

Project status

HPPA is a security supported architecture. It runs pretty stable.

Keywording policy

ARCH=hppa has best-effort stable keywords: stage3 and installcd uses stable packages.

Please keep adding hppa@ to CC list for STABLEREQs if hppa already has stable keywords for a package.

ARCH=hppa has no stable profiles. This allows for package cleanup of old packages without waiting for hppa@ completion. It's expected such package removals occasionally break hppa tree.
