Just remove it! If the council can not be bothered to help developers
develop but instead hinder developers from developing, then they are
no longer relevant and should be treated as such. Other course of
action could always be that they should all be kicked out and replaced
with a suitable organization to ensure Gentoo's technical and
developmental success.
