A few devs have setup an unofficial Gentoo project, a planet feed of blogs of Gentoo users. The site is available online right now at http://www.planetlarry.org/

The idea is simple -- we already have Planet Gentoo and Gentoo Universe which pull in blogs from the developers, but we'd also like something that will give us a pulse on what you, the users, are up to.

So if you use Gentoo, blog about Gentoo, or think about Gentoo and have a blog, send your website address and name and we'll get you added right away. :)

Plus, the planet has an RSS feed of its own that you can subscribe to. Looking forward to getting you added. :)

Edit: You can e-mail me directly at beandog at gentoo dot org with questions or to get added

Edit: Just thought I'd address a few questions that have already come up ...

Do I have to be blogging about Gentoo?

No, anything you blog about is fine -- we just want an aggregation of Gentoo users's blogs.

Does it have to be in English?

Nope. If we get enough users, we'll setup planets for each language that we have a group of.

For instance, we have already setup one just for German-speaking bloggers: http://www.larrythecow.org/de/

I'm using <blogging system>. Does that work with Planet?

Planet Planet's backend is very versatile, and so far has managed to handle everything we've thrown at it. I wouldn't worry about it.

Do I have to submit just one category?

No, we want your entire feed. :)

What if I don't blog much?

It doesn't matter. Even if you post irregularly, we'd still like to pull it in. Some people only post once every few weeks or so. That's fine.

How do I get my blog listed?

Send me (beandog) a pm on the forums, and e-mail, or ping me on IRC on freenode. I just need your blog's website address (the XML feed if you know it, if not, dont worry about it), your first and last name, and your e-mail address. That's it!

We're hoping to get a lot of Gentoo users aggregated, so don't be shy! Also, this is a blog feed of *just* Gentoo users. No devs allowed. :)

Hey Larry, the site is buggy.

http://larrythecow.org/ > Seeing this instead of the website you expected? *nods head*
