Gentoo would like to congratulate Gibix and JSteward for finishing and passing Google’s Summer of Code for the 2018 calendar year. Gibix contributed by enhancing Rust (programming language) support within Gentoo.JSteward contributed by making a full Gentoo GNU/Linux distribution, managed by Portage, run on devices which use the original Android-customized kernel.
The final reports of their projects can be reviewed on their personal blogs:

We believe this incident is now resolved. Please see the incident report for details about the incident, its impact, and resolution.

The community raised questions about the provenance of Gentoo packages. Gentoo development is performed onhardware run by the Gentoo Infrastructure team (not github). The Gentoo hardware was unaffected by this incident.Users using the default Gentoo mirroring infrastructure should not be affected.
If you are still concerned about provenance or are unsure what solution you are using, please consult https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Portage/Repository_Verification. This will instruct you on how to verify your repository.

The gentoo GitHub organization remains temporarily locked down by GitHubsupport, pending fixes to pull-request content.
For ongoing status, please see the Gentoo infra-status incident page.
For later followup, please see the Gentoo Wiki page for GitHub 2018-06-28. An incident post-mortem will follow on the wiki.
- Gentoo accepted into Google Summer of Code 2018
Students who want to spend their summer having fun and writing code can do so now for Gentoo. Gentoo has been accepted as a mentoring organization for this year’s Google Summer of Code.
The GSoC is an excellent opportunity for gaining real-world experience in software design and making one’s self known in the broader open source community. It also looks great on a resume.
Initial project ideas can be found here, although new projects ideas are welcome. For new projects time is of the essence: there is typically some idea-polishing which must occur before the March 27th deadline. Because of this it is strongly recommended that students refine new project ideas with a mentor before proposing the idea formally.
GSoC students are encouraged to begin discussing ideas in the #gentoo-soc IRC channel on the Freenode network.
Further information can be found on the Gentoo GSoC 2018 wiki page. Those with unanswered questions should not hesitate to contact the Summer of Code mentors via the mailing list.
- FOSDEM 2018
Put on your cow bells and follow the herd of Gentoo developers to Université libre de Bruxelles in Brussels, Belgium. This year FOSDEM 2018 will be held on February 3rd and 4th.
Our developers will be ready to candidly greet all open source enthusiasts at the Gentoo stand in building K. Visit this year’s wiki page to see which developer will be running the stand during the different visitation time slots. So far seven developers have specified their attendance, with most-likely more on the way!
Unlike past years, Gentoo will not be hosting a keysigning party, however participants are encouraged to exchange and verify OpenPGP key data to continue building the Gentoo Web of Trust. See the wiki article for more details.
