For May I have decided to do a distro round up (has been suggested by others before). Currently we Ubuntu, White Box, and Gentoo. Anyone else?

What we are looking for:
Installation (hard/easy/broken)
Package Management
Update methods and policies
Release interval.

Also just what makes that distro special.

If you need someone to present Gentoo, I would be happy to take everyone for a spin. If you just want a write-up I can do that too.

Hehehe I was offered to do gentoo but you know more about it then I do I'm sure though. doesn't bother me either way

I'll happily talk about Debian. I'd talk about it even more happily in tandem with Jeff Bowman ;-D

I've got to setup a reminder or something so I can remember to come to the Sig meetings. Somehow, I've managed to lose track of time enough that I didn't realize it was the appropriate Thursday to show up for the Sig. (ARG!!)

Anyway, I'd love to be in on this with Colleen.

{Colleen} We should get together and coordinate what we want to present. Do you still have the paper we put together for the last installfest? That might be a good place to start. We can also do an Impress presentation if we want. Send me an email or something so we can coordinate.

OK Gentoo and Debian are on the list. If you want to work together on a presentation go for it. I will get everything announced today.
