We encourage you to [[Funtoo Linux Installation|install Funtoo Linux]], and get involved in our user community. Get to know fellow Funtoo Linux users on our [http://forums.funtoo.org forums]. If you have any improvements or find any bugs in Funtoo Linux, you are strongly encouraged to report them on our [http://bugs.funtoo.org bug tracker]. This isn't just a formality -- we take all bugs seriously, and all work performed on Funtoo Linux is tracked on our bug tracker, for purposes of transparency (and to help everyone, including BDFL, from having to remember too much!)

Funtoo Linux is led by [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Robbins_(computer_programmer) Daniel Robbins], the creator and former Chief Architect of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gentoo_Linux Gentoo Linux], who serves as benevolent dictator for life (BDFL) of the project. Our organizational structure consists of BDFL and a small number of support staff, as well as members of our user community who are involved in improving Funtoo Linux. Developement efforts are driven by the BDFL as well as our users, and efforts are under way to implement various mechanisms to allow supporters of Funtoo Linux to chart the future direction of the project.

Funtoo Linux packages are installed from source code, automatically, thanks to the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portage_(software) Portage ports system.] Funtoo Linux has its own distinct ports tree (repository of packages), which is based on Gentoo's. Every several hours, the Funtoo Linux Portage tree is updated using an automated merge process, to include the latest changes from Gentoo Linux, Funtoo Linux developers and contributors, as well as other independent developers.
