Hey all,

Long time Gentoo user. It's been about a decade since I've used Gentoo in earnest, but from 2003 to 2010, I was strictly Gentoo. Before that, LFS.

I am to a point in my life where I trust Gentoo and portage more than myself and where CPU time is WAY cheaper than mine.

What I am looking for is a "Human out of the loop" method for installing custom systems. I feel there should be a way to front load the configuration and tell the OS to go build itself.

Why human out of the loop? Because, for the work I do, I need consistent compilation. If there is a bug that needs to be fixed or a package which needs to be updated, I want to reflect that change in a config file and rebake the whole damn thing.

I do not see an unattended system for Gentoo, which I find surprising. I suspect it is out there but isn't well documented.

The thing you're talking about is called "Catalyst" and/or GRS. Both are parts of Release Engineering project.

It was an overkill for me, but I think it will be the perfect tool for you.
I suppose https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:RelEng will give you some idea. You may want to join their irc or something... You can guess it's not extremely popular tool.
