Actually, I still think that agriffis was correct in his assertion that
most devs work on Gentoo for their own interests, and that the
developers are our distro's primary consumers.  It is amazing that so
many others find our work useful, and we very much appreciate the
Gentoo community that has formed.  Consequently,  we are willing to do our
best to provide a distro that scratches our users itches as well as our
own, but ultimately it is developer self-interest that keeps things
going.
