Welcome to flora. We, the Funtoo Core Team Members, are happy to say hi to you here. You probably want to know more about flora, so let us start with that first.

What is flora?

If you found this, you most likely already know what flora is, and why we selected that name. Feel free to skip this part if you already know. Otherwise, if you found your way here from Gentoo's layman archive, read on to understand what it is and how it works.

First, we'll address the question as to why we have chosen flora as our name. Let's have a look at the definition of flora.

  1. A group of plants, especially the indigenous plants of a particular time or region.
  2. A book or treatise describing the plants of a particular region or time.
  3. Bacterial organisms, like those that naturally inhabit a bodily organ or appendage, e.g. intestinal flora.

We hope that only the first two definitions will be taken into account when submitting ebuilds to flora.

We try to uphold Funtoo's high standards in ebuilds submitted to flora. It would be unrealistic to expect users not to make mistakes, however. As we are all humans (hopefully) and all humans make mistakes, just give us a call if you make a mistake so that we can take care of it as soon as possible. :)
