Donnie, The council have met monthly as required by the GLEP. This meeting is single topic about policy, it neither requires to be in public, nor does it require anyone other than -council. A closed session or emails or teleconference would be quite in order for determining and agreeing policy. Forcing an election over this issue, is in effect, a vote of no confidence in our council Delaying the policy setting for three months, until a new council is elected (1 month nominations, 1 month elections, a few weeks for admin) is not in the best interests of Gentoo, nor those whose appeals will be delayed. While the present council would remain in office until replaced, they could hardly make a ruling on the very issue that forced the vote of no confidence. An election now, over this, is just silly. - -- Regards, Roy Bamford (NeddySeagoon) a member of gentoo-ops forum-mods treecleaners trustees For the avoidance of doubt, I'm writing as an individual developer, not on behalf of any office or team I am a part of. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.9 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAkgsqt8ACgkQTE4/y7nJvasTCwCbBmfHQhQaKS+yh4EXtl5Z/FMw 2NYAoJ5pGK5DD6SjX36sZXE0czXJzdpG =kC4P -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-council@l.g.o mailing list
