Yes, it's nice to see how many people actually read this request *shrug*

I still don't like the idea that each Gentoo dev is a Foundation member. The
1 year period allows developers to integrate in the project, find out how
the various projects interact, where the bottlenecks are, etc.

People who are just brought on board for, lets say, managing sys-foo/bar,
might not know how much efforts porting takes, or how documentation works.
There is no way to be sure they know this after a year, but then they have
had all the opportunities to get to know them (which isn't entirely possible
if you're no Gentoo developer).

I do agree on the explicit request to vote (voting members).

Wkr,
