I'm a bit reluctant with respect to gentoo.  It's philosophy isn't a
stable release in the first place, but to have the latest and greatest
of everything available(*), if I get their philosophy right.

Using "stable" Linux distros as an indicator, whether a package needs a
vote or not, is a sort of reality check.  Packages not in a "stable"
distro are likely not used very often, not as well tested, etc.  Gentoo
is not a very well indicator here.


(*) I don't mean to imply that gentoo isn't stable.  No offense meant.
