Right, the default should be to discuss things in public. There used
to be the gentoo-council list for this, but now I'm being told that it
shouldn't be used, but discussions should go to gentoo-project
IMHO this doesn't make much sense, as gentoo-project traditionally was
used for non-technical matters (in fact, its description still says
so). Looking into the archives, most topics on that list aren't
related to the council. I would much prefer if we had a dedicated
mailing list for actual council work, like discussion of our agenda
items. A dedicated council list would also make it easier to find
So, can we please reconsider that previous council's decision? Please
put this point on the agenda of the next meeting.
