If you need more information about GLSA, it is available at gentoo.org.
Gentoo Linux is my distro of choice, so, it goes without saying that I follow closely any news related to it. Donnie Berkholz, one of the current active developers and PR lead, has published kinda interesting article on the current state of Gentoo development.

Donnie mentions the lack of volunteers, so if you can do anything for the community, and, more importantly, you are willing to help, check Gentoo recruitment page.
