No, but you are requesting voting ability. Which we lack the resources
for. So would be nice to see some effort there. Instead of just saying,
yeah we need that. Then waiting for another to make it happen.

Just found it interesting people from two parties required to make
something happen both were interested in. Would bring up a subject and
topic. Second it, and then fail to act upon it.

If you want to see that as calling someone out. Ok, and in that respect.
The trustees were being called out for not putting something to a vote.

Tit for tat does not lead to increased productivity.

Not sure how to read that statement. Given that the foundation never
functioned properly short of it's first year in 04-05. Since then it's
failed year after year. So I am not sure I would be proud of being a
member. Or that during your 5+ years, the foundation sat by the way
side. Being totally neglected, not even doing the bare minimum required
of any NPO.

Gentoo Foundation != Gentoo Project

So 5+ years contributed to the project, doesn't do a damn thing for a
ailing foundation of ~4yrs.

I am sick of others commenting, waiting for someone else to act.

>  Stop commenting. I was not replying to you to begin with.

Thus I have just joined the penal gallery with all the other
comment'ers. As is others right to do so, I am simply commenting as a
foundation member.

It's just sad that while I was acting, others commented the point of
convincing me to cease any and all actions. What a win for the community
and the foundation. So now I will just comment like others and wait to
see who if anyone acts.
