From Gentoo Wiki
Hi, I am a gentoo user for over 10 years, though not expert still. I always google around for updating packages, which is pain as well as fun. The inconsistency of packages and migration would be the biggest pain for unable to find any clue to solve. Usually what bother are packages unmaintained while necessary. Frequently the alternatives are provided but that info is uneasy to find and migration process is neither apparent nor handy. I think of the cost of time to figure out, but other distro would just give another, often more stressful, pain anyway. So I feel Gentoo is the most comfortable platform to play with.
Now I want to find a way to contribute to the community. Thank you for reading up to here and for getting me involve.
