I simply wish to offer my services in an advisory role to the trustees. 
I have experience running organizations, as well as a great deal of
experience in the non-profit world, particularly with grants & fund
raising.  With this, I suppose I should take the staff quiz, as I am
interested in taking on some responsibilities relating to Gentoo.  I
have posted some of  my ideas  to this list, & Mr. Joshua Jackson
syndicated that post to his blog, here:

Whats more, I have the motivation, time, & connections to make the ideas
I covered in the above post happen. I would love the opportunity to
collaborate with the trustees & developers to make Gentoo just a bit
better. I love Gentoo & I want to do my part to help!

I hope you will find my input noteworthy, &  take me up on my offer.

Best Regards,

Matthew Summers
