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.
