Gentoo-Bionic: We Can Rebuild Him. Better. Stronger. Faster. Summary: short history, rationale, current state, technical challenges in building, separability of the Android build system, relevance as a communal starting point for new distros, BSD userspace, iteratively adding enough features to bionic to compile / link busybox, bash, classpath, jamvm, ecj, python, lua, etc (demos). Also created mäk - an autotools-compatible, non-recursive replacement for Automake. An extensive list of functions / syscalls added to Bionic will be given. QA period following presentation.

Audience: this project is currently targeted at embedded developers. Goals: layman(8) overlay, eventual upstream Portage inclusion, supporting Bionic "JellyBean" as a Gentoo ELIBC.
