I've created a new project, called Gentoo Seeds [1]. The aim of the project
is to create stage4 tarballs which can be used to 'seed' new boxes with
ready-built Gentoo solutions.

At the moment, we're working on a basic LAMP Server (which is why we're
hanging out in #gentoo-php), and talking about following up with a LAMP
Developer Desktop. If you'd like to help, we'd love to work with you.

We'd more than welcome other people who want to create completely different
seeds. We're doing LAMP because it's an obvious thing to seed; we hope that
all sorts of seeds will appear down the road.

Until we've gone through a few iterations and worked out the best way to
create seeds, we're working in an overlay [2]. We certainly hope to bring
the work into the main tree once things have settled down.
