We have no current plans to create a Gentoo image, as we have seen a lower demand for this compared to other distros, and a workaround is possible by creating a custom VM image. Note that Gentoo is highly customizable, which makes it less suited to being offered as a platform image running Azure agent, as assumptions would need to be made about the desired configuration. We will revisit this decision if customer demand for this distro increases.
