Gentoo support

Dear all. I do not know if this has already been asked previously. I like the idea that you can package and test your builds on one central point for multiple Linux distributions, especially that it includes support over a web interface. My question now is: Is it planned to also support Gentoo Linux? I know that the Gentoo Ebuild format is somehow special but it would ease the development a lot to also have it included on build.opensuse.org ;-). If it is not planned to include it in the near future are there any reasons (technical, legal) why it would not be possible…?

In general, I can’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be possible - but the
people to ask would be the build service folks on the mailing list, as
the maintainers of that infrastructure are there.

The help we provide in this forum is more around general packaging issues
rather than implementation of OBS.
