OK so infra wouldn't be CTO.

Yeah but I disagree that the Council is limited to CTO, since the whole pupose 
of Gentoo is to develop software. I'd argue the Trustees are a Supervisory 
Board, and the Council an Executive Board within the two-tier model.

The portage team strike me more as the CTO in that setup though I admit your 
knowledge of these titles outweighs mine ;)
