Jorge,

The three remaining trustees were also nominated to stand for election 
for the council. Had they all accepted and been elected to the council, 
today we would be in the position of having trustees being a subset of 
council. That would have totally destroyed the council/foundation split 
that was one of the reasons the two bodies were created.

We need rules to stop that situation from occuring.

If we are to remove the council/foundation split and adopt a more 
normal corporate structure, lets do it deliberately with the changes to 
both council and foundation to make a single workable body capable of 
dealing with all aspects of Gentoo and without holding back development 
rather than find we have done it accidently by electing the same people 
to both bodies.

The opinions expressed here are my own, not the opinions of the Gentoo 
Foundation Inc.
