Look I am not the board. I do not have to clarify every little detail to
ever person. Frankly I am very close to burn out on all this.
I have already private voiced to the trustees I will be stepping back
and assessing things. My letter of resignation might soon follow. If it
weren't for the obligation I feel toward those who voted for me. Despite
me saying in my manifesto, don't vote for me.
Much less my own interested in making sure Gentoo has a future.

Us paying GNi for their services monthly. Would scratch their back way
more than the ad does now. So basically GNi is giving is a massage, and
we tickle their feet in return.
Yes mighty fair, which is why we almost lost them. Still no one comments
on that :) Which still could come. And no one would be prepared for
that, and I can't even imagine the effect it would have on the project.
