I agree. I'd like the Council to appoint a qualitied PMS leader who is
empowered to moderate posts to gentoo-dev@ from people who consistently
post FUD about EAPI and PMS related issues. I believe that doing so
will substantially reduce the amount of noise involved in the
discussion, and will enable us to have sensible PMS related discussions
without them being derailed by trolls. Also, it'll be harder for those
trolls to post nonsense like "PMS isn't for Portage" and "PMS is about
Exherbo, not Gentoo" if a Gentoo developer is prepared to step in and
address all the crap instead of leaving it to me...
I suggest asking any potential candidates to start by addressing bug
282470. That should give a good indication of how well they're going to
work with the people who do the grunt work on PMS.
