Hi, I am working with VM's to bundle Linux applications and provide a more convenient cross-compilation experience for Linux and other users. I see that Vagrant Cloud has some personal images posted for Gentoo, but no official one is maintained:

https://app.vagrantup.com/boxes/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&sort=downloads&provider=&q=gentoo

Could we get verified base images published each week, so that Vagrant users will have confidence that they are running a true Gentoo VM, and not someone's virus VM?

What's your definition of "true Gentoo", and "official"? It doesn't sound like you understand metadistributions.

He might just be looking for a LiveDVD equivalent, but packaged to run in his cloud of choice rather than trying to coerce one of the existing reference images into playing nicely. That said, I tend to agree that Gentoo is far too flexible and too often customized for it to make much sense to try to do this.

OP: by your interpretation, does the Gentoo project currently publish anything that, were someone to wrap it in Vagrant, would satisfy your request? It's one thing to ask for a new wrapper around work that is mostly done already. It's quite another to ask for an entirely new spin.
