I had to think about running for a while because I am not spending as much time on Gentoo as I was for example five years ago. After Tony's encouranging words on #gentoo-council I decided to check if people still feel I should be on the council. Initial Manifesto: I have been on the council for the last five years. This means that if you want a radical change to happen I am not the candidate to vote for. Some people seem to have written the git migration on their agendas. If the council could have made it happen then I think it would have happened a long a while ago. In Gentoo things happen because of the people writing ebuilds / code / whatever (thanks!). The primary role of the council is deciding on the issues put on the agenda. To some degree we should be proactive in filling the agenda but really the best way to move the distro forward is for individual developers to make their ideas and code public. If no consensus can be reached then the council is the tool to select between competing options. I think one concrete goal for this term is to for me to review the GLEPs related to devrel, QA, council etc as there's been some work started by for example calchan but those projects where never properly finished. As my history in delivering manifesto goals is not stellar I promise to buy a beer to anyone at FOSDEM or any other conference if I fail to do a good job and you come asking for it after voting for me :) Regards, Petteri [1] http://dev.gentoo.org/~grobian/manifesto-2012.txt
