If my distribution would support GIT/SVN/HG/CSV ebuilds then I would
indeed. This is the only way to participate in the open source
community and to contribute back, even if you are not a coder.

But I guess, except for GCC, I am on par with the latest released

./configure ; make install isn't that big of a hassle is it? Ok maybe
it is on Debian, because for everything you want to link to you have
to figure out what the name is of the -devel package...

Great I guess? Because before 1.2.100 the source code has never been
checked by any static code analysis system. And Debian didn't care
about that :) Because Debian usually only cares about their opinion
about what is called stable and what is called 'free software'.

I am really getting tired of this discussion. Especially it makes
Cherokee look bad, while every release bugs have been fixed and
stability has improved considerably.
