Considering that there are over 30 pages in this forum, this will probably become unwieldy rather quickly. Also, please only post suggestions for additions to the post. Thanks.

(Split off the chat to a thread in Dustbin.)

It would be a great idea to limit threads in Docs, Tricks and Tips to Guides only. Chat should be in a separate thread in a separate forum, perhaps created for that purpose. Not only do the forums get unwieldy, but the threads themselves get big and unavigable.

I agree. Its a difficult and time consuming task though.

Perhaps this should be formated in a Gentoo Manual like the FreeBSD manual rather than simply in a comilation format...

Yes, maybe.. Sorting the tips would be useful.
Like .. Command Line, Applications, Graphical, Hardware, Networking .. ?

Keeping the (unofficial) wiki updated with all these tips and howto's would IMO be the best way to organize it. Forums get unwieldy rather quickly when trying to organize howto's, tips and tricks (but are excellent sources of development of such howto's, and feedback on those).

Perhaps gentoo.org should have its own official wiki?

Edit:
(Unofficial) wiki @ http://gentoo-wiki.com/
