We always had the policy distros that ship with Xfce only (on the
default install) + Lunar. Gentoo is nothing more special then a lot of
other distros, and i'm pretty sure we get a lot more feedback and bugs
from Debian and Fedora, those are not on the list too. Nothing
offensive about that, if you add all distros that ship with Xfce you
can also redirect to

If you don't want to list Lunar, then put it outside the distros list,
but it really deserves some credit on the website.
