+<h2>What is Gentoo?</h2>
+
+<p class="lead">
+ Gentoo is a free operating system based on either Linux or FreeBSD that can be automatically optimized and customized for just about any application or need.
+ <br>
+ Extreme configurability, performance and a top-notch user and developer community are all hallmarks of the Gentoo experience.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+ Thanks to a technology called <strong>Portage,</strong> Gentoo can become an ideal secure server, development workstation,
+ professional desktop, gaming system, embedded solution or something else—whatever you need it to be.
+ Because of its near-unlimited adaptability, we call Gentoo a metadistribution.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+ Of course, Gentoo is more than just the software it provides.
+ It is a community built around a distribution which is driven by more than 300 developers and thousands of users.
+ The distribution project provides the means for the users to enjoy Gentoo:
+ documentation, infrastructure, release engineering, software porting, quality assurance, security followup, hardening and more.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+ To advise on and help with Gentoo's global development, a 7-member council is elected on a yearly basis which decides on global issues,
+ policies and advancements in the Gentoo project.
+</p>
+
+<h2>What is Portage?</h2>
+
+<p class="lead">
+ Portage is the heart of Gentoo, and performs many key functions. For one, Portage is the software distribution system for Gentoo:
+</p>
+
+<p>
+ To get the latest software for Gentoo, you type one command: <kbd>emerge --sync</kbd>.
+ This command tells Portage to update your local "Portage tree" over the Internet.
+ Your local Portage tree contains a complete collection of scripts that can be used by Portage to create and install the latest Gentoo packages.
+ Currently, we have more than 10000 packages in our Portage tree, with updates and new ones being added all the time.
+</p>
+
+<p class="lead">
+ Portage is also a package building and installation system:
+</p>
+
+<p>
+ When you want to install a package, you type <kbd>emerge packagename</kbd>,
+ at which point Portage automatically builds a custom version of the package to your exact specifications,
+ optimizing it for your hardware and ensuring that the optional features in the package that you want are enabled—and those you don't want aren't.
+</p>
+
+<p class="lead">
+ Portage also keeps your system up-to-date:
+</p>
+
+<p>
+ Typing one command (<kbd>emerge -uD world</kbd>) will ensure that all the packages that <em>you</em> want on your system are updated automatically.

+title: 'The Philosophy of Gentoo'
+navtitle: 'Philosophy'
+---
+Every user has work they need to do. The goal of Gentoo is to design tools and systems that allow a user to do that work as pleasantly and efficiently as possible, as they see fit. Our tools should be a joy to use, and should help the user to appreciate the richness of the Linux and free software community, and the flexibility of free software. This is only possible when the tool is designed to reflect and transmit the will of the user, and leave the possibilities open as to the final form of the raw materials (the source code.) If the tool forces the user to do things a particular way, then the tool is working against, rather than for, the user. We have all experienced situations where tools seem to be imposing their respective wills on us. This is backwards, and contrary to the Gentoo philosophy.
+
+Put another way, the Gentoo philosophy is to create better tools. When a tool is doing its job perfectly, you might not even be very aware of its presence, because it does not interfere and make its presence known, nor does it force you to interact with it when you don't want it to. The tool serves the user rather than the user serving the tool.
+
+The goal of Gentoo is to strive to create near-ideal tools. Tools that can accommodate the needs of many different users all with divergent goals. Don't you love it when you find a tool that does exactly what you want to do? Doesn't it feel great? Our mission is to give that sensation to as many people as possible.

+title: 'Gentoo Social Contract'
+navtitle: 'Social Contract'
+---
+This social contract is intended to clearly describe the overall development policies and standards of the Gentoo project development team. Parts of this document have been derived from the [Debian Social Contract](http://www.debian.org/social_contract). It is generally very similar to it except that certain parts have been clarified and augmented while other parts deemed redundant have been removed. Comments are welcome. Please send them to our [gentoo-dev@lists.gentoo.org](mailto:gentoo-dev@lists.gentoo.org) mailing list.
+
+##What is Gentoo?
+
+Gentoo in itself is a collection of free knowledge.
+Knowledge in this context can be defined as documentation and metadata concerned with concepts or domains relevant to operating systems and their components,
+as well as [free software](http://www.fsf.org/philosophy/free-sw.html) contributed by various developers to the Gentoo Project.
+
+Gentoo, the operating system, is derived from the base concept of knowledge described above.
+A Gentoo operating system should satisfy the self-hosting requirement.
+In other words, the operating system should be able to build itself from scratch using the aforementioned tools and metadata.
+If a product associated with an official Gentoo project does not satisfy these requirements, the product does not qualify as a Gentoo operating system.
+
+An official list of Gentoo projects is listed under the Gentoo Metastructure.
+A Gentoo project does not need to produce a Gentoo operating system in order to be officially recognized.
+
+##Gentoo is and will remain Free Software
+
+We will release our contributions to Gentoo as free software, metadata or documentation,
+under the GNU General Public License version 2 (or later, at our discretion) or the Creative Commons - Attribution / Share Alike version 2 (or later, at our discretion).
+Any external contributions to Gentoo (in the form of freely-distributable sources, binaries, metadata or documentation) may be incorporated into Gentoo
+provided that we are legally entitled to do so.
+However, Gentoo will never depend upon a piece of software or metadata unless it conforms to the GNU General Public License, the GNU Lesser General Public License,
+the Creative Commons - Attribution/Share Alike or some other license approved by the Open Source Initiative ([OSI](http://www.opensource.org/licenses/index.html)).
+
+<div class="alert alert-success">
+Note: We are considering extending the above clause to require that all core Gentoo components must conform
+to a license approved by the OSI and Free Software Foundation (<a href="http://www.gnu.org/">FSF</a>).
+</div>
+
+##We will give back to the Free Software Community
+
+We will establish relationships with Free Software authors and collaborate with them when possible. We will submit bug-fixes, improvements, user requests, etc. to the "upstream" authors of software included in our system. We will also clearly document our contributions to Gentoo as well as any improvements or changes we make to external sources used by Gentoo (whether in the form of patches, "sed tweaks" or some other form). We acknowledge that our improvements and changes are much more meaningful to the larger Free Software community if they are clearly documented and explained, since not everyone has the time or ability to understand the literal changes contained in the patches or tweaks themselves.
+
+##We will not hide problems
+
+We will keep our [bug report database](http://bugs.gentoo.org/) open for public view at all times; reports that users file online will immediately become visible to others.
+
+Exceptions are made when we receive security-related or developer relations information with the request not to publicize before a certain deadline. \ No newline at end of file
