Introduction

These questions are intended to ensure a deep understanding of Gentoo as a whole and specific development situations that you will likely encounter during your time as a Gentoo developer. It's perfectly acceptable to ask your mentor or other knowledgeable individuals for assistance. When completed, answers should be mailed to recruiters@gentoo.org along with other items mentioned on Recruiters.

Quiz selection

Developers who will have commit access to the Gentoo ebuild repository and/or will be performing ebuild development or maintenance tasks should take the ebuild quiz, followed by the end of mentoring quiz. It is strongly advisable to submit both quizzes before a recruiter is assigned to perform the review sessions to avoid delays or interruption during this process.

Developers who will be strictly working on infrastructure, GLSAs, or other non-ebuild areas of the project and will not have commit access to the Gentoo ebuild repository should take the developer quiz.
