This sounds a bit offensive Nick ;) I agree that Lunar has a special
position because it powers our servers, but still the Gentoo guys put a
lot of efforts to provide a nice Xfce experience so refusing to add them
to the list like this can be insulting (I don't use gentoo at all and
never did, so I'm just stating this based on facts).
I'm about to update that page heavily and to redesign its look, some
outdated distros will get out of the list, some might make it in. I'll
consider adding Gentoo at that time, but please don't start a troll
thread on distros guys!
Enjoy your sunday,
