Gentoo Policy Guide aims to become a definitive clear source of all Tree Policies that are currently binding to Gentoo developers. It combines both policies that are global by design (i.e. set by the QA team or the Council), as well as specific to other Gentoo projects. The policies are meant to be supplied with rationale and clear indication of the body setting the policy, and therefore the process in which the policy can be updated.


This document is maintained by the Gentoo QA project.
