Gentoo Saw Total Commits Rise By 42% In 2020, Great Progress On Wayland
The Gentoo project published their retrospective for 2020. Besides healthy growth on a commit basis, the past year brought "distribution kernels" to Gentoo for building/installing kernels entirely via the package manager, Wayland support "progressed greatly" with their KDE Plasma and GNOME desktop packages as well as via the likes of Wayfire and Sway compositors, Lua and Python packaging improvements, and more.
Gentoo in 2020 also saw its AArch64 support promoted to stable, RISC-V architecture support get underway, and a new 64-bit Android prefix tarball was published.
