No, certainly not, though I guess it should not be surprising to me, with
trust in this project so low, that someone would suspect this.

I made commitments to the original management team (this did and does
include you,) and to most of the additional managers added after that. This
is because the management was originally intended to morph into the board
for the NFP, so I am following through on that.

I also made commitments to g2boojum and agriffis. They are well-respected
and senior members of this project whom I thought would be an asset to the
board.

So any of these people will have the opportunity to serve as board members
if they so choose. And again, this includes you.

I have no idea what you are trying to say here.

I'm sorry that you view my past decisions to put Gentoo above the needs of
my family as "whining."

Anyway, I hope you'll choose to accept a position on the board of the NFP.
