Hi Thomas,

Calculate Linux is Gentoo compatible (with softwares, wikis etc..) but the os-release and gentoo-release modified by Calculate Linux Team.

/etc/os-release (number increased with new versions) :

Calculate Container Scratch 18.12



# Modified Calculate Utilities 3.6.3

# Processed template files:

# /var/lib/layman/calculate/profiles/templates/3.6/2_ac_install_merge/sys-apps/baselayout/os-release

# For modify this file, create /run/calculate/mount/container_CCS_amd64/etc/os-release.clt template.









I don't know if that can help you to add Calculate Linux as container.

I extract the container on my PC, i replace the os-release file as Gentoo Container, and compress again the container. Importation work very well. After an update, the container doesn't start. I don't know why.
