have used gentoo as desktop for nearly 2years
just user,not developer.

I'm wondering how can I get a postbox as ...@gentoo.org?
the domain name is so cool...

how can I regesiter it?

I think it's not for free, right?

if I make donation, like 10 dollars 20 dollars ,will I get one?
or if I submit some useful ebuilds?
or have I to became a developer(I mean amateur developer) ?

I'm a student studying computer tech.
if via above means I can get one mailbox , I'll try it.

You need to be a developer to get a gentoo.org email address, unless they've changed that policy recently.

@double_crane,

Thanks for the enthusiasm, but there's no mechanism that I'm aware of for a non-developer, non-staff to have an @gentoo.org email address. You can look at becoming a developer or staff member if you really want it that bad.

thank you for your reply.

I know it's hard to own.
that's why I think it's cool;

the policy is good , reasonable. I'm absolutely in favor of it.
If everyone can gets one org mailbox so easily , won't I be so eager to it

I like the mailbox because its org domain ,which means non-commerial organization
aim to make world more free,nice to live
(it's may because I used gentoo so long,more than windows now,
to some degrees I've been impressed .,and also as a university student ,I really love the linux's freedom,GNU thought.
own a non-commerial postmail will make me proud of it, :D )

I'll try,,,,hope several years later ,, I can own one gentoo org mailbox ,,or other org mailbox
I'm just 22 years old now . my life is long.
I believe i can do it.

thank you for your replys again. :D

Moved from Documentation, Tips & Tricks to Gentoo Chat as it fits better here.
