This is not exactly nice of you. And taking in account that you are actualy
the council member it makes me feel not entirely happy.
If we just simply take look onto this:
we can count that Zac commit something into portage every 3 hours. It does not
look entirely like slacking...
So you are basicaly proposing that maintaining the current codebase and
improving what we already have is less important than providing new features,
that is also not good.
Just my 2 cents
