Default Gsoc Idea: EeePC Script/Build

Hello, I would like to apply as a student in the Google Summer of Code program. I would like to work on creating a simple method to install Gentoo on an EeePC. This will involve creating scripts and code that will preconfigure the Gentoo instalation to be optimized for the EeePC, and to contain all of the appropriate modules and configurations to enable all hardware on the EeePC.


I own an EeePC 900 with which I wil be abe to test. I am uncertain if this or something similar has been done before, or if this is an appropriate Google SOC project. Please give feedback or questions, thankyou.

wouldn't one problem with this be that different EeePC's have
different hardware? I believe, that your's has an atom processor while
older models have a celeron.

being that I'm not a gentoo dev, and although I think the project is
worthwhile, I personally don't see that it's a gsoc worthwhile, esp
since gentoo doesn't really do it for anything else. tbh, would this
take more than a week to do? I'm not overtly familliar with the EeePC
but it doesn't seem that unless you were highly un-gentoo-ing it that
this would be a long process, given that I believe the architecture is
all x86.. (maybe x86_64?)
