Chris,

I'm glad there is some debate going on. I agree with everything you 
have written. 

Non Gentoo Developers will probably contribute more to the foundation 
than ebuild developers (they don't have the same focus on software) and 
in the long term, that's the way I want to see the Foundation go. Allow 
me to refer you to my election manifesto.

As I see it today, we need a set of bylaws that we can live with as 
soon as we can get them, then develop the bylaws as we develop the 
Foundation.

I believe that its essential to the long term survival of the Gentoo 
Foundation to open up Foundation membership to the whole community.
I'm aware that not everyone shares that view so I would rather have 
some agreed bylaws that we can build on than spend the rest of our 
first term of office failing to ratify any bylaws at all.
I'm sure if we make the changes in small steps, we will make faster 
progress than going for the big bang.
