      Description

      This is a proposal to create a "very stable", non-rolling release branch of Funtoo Linux, ideal for enterprise deployments as well as desktop users who need things to "just work" and who are not interested in building new versions of packages all the time. This would be an option available to Funtoo Linux users, so people who preferred our existing rolling release model could continue to use Funtoo Linux current/stable or experimental and get the experience they're used to. Those who really need stability could use this new option. We know that quite a few people require this additional stability to use Funtoo in the enterprise.

      An effort has been made to document how we might accomplish this on the wiki:

      http://www.funtoo.org/index.php?title=Funtoo_Linux_Release_Engineering_Proposal

      Opinions/comments/suggestions can be shared below.

      Daniel Robbins will be refining this proposal at some point.
