Are there any ROM's either released or in the process of being released that runs off a gingerbread build for the droid 2?
No, and it's never happening until Motorola releases an official 2.3 update, or the bootloader gets cracked.
If you want to keep up with the latests android version without having to wait for the OEM, buy a phone with a non-locked bootloader next time.
Yeah i understand the locked bootloader causes some inconvience. But what i don't get is why a gingerbread based rom wouldn't be able to be installed. droid 2 can install other roms what would make it different in that situation? Is there something obvious im missing?

I understand people want the newest and bestest things but to tell you guys the truth there is very little that gingerbread has that we really need.
It does add a lot to any of the devs but to the end user its basically just as better battery manager and a better keyboard (Which we already have).
I am perfectly content with what I have but will be more than happy to upgrade when motorola releases the update.
As stated above everything has to be built from the original Droid 2 build. Ultimate droid is making us a GB ROM but they have all but given up on the project, easiest thing to do is just run one of the current ROM's and wait for motorola to officially release the GB update whenever that may be.
Since our bootloader is locked, it prevents us from updating the kernel to the version that Gingerbread requires. This is also the reason that AOSP ROMs have been so difficult to get working on the D2(although it seems like we are getting closer). Most AOSP ROMs like CyanogenMod require changes to the kernel, which we just can't do on the D2.
