Perhaps I misunderstand you here, but I don't think making radical
changes is good, that's what 7 people balance out.  Radical changes have
been made to important parts of Gentoo like e.g. Python, and this didn't
really result in a major improvement, IMO.

Being a council member means you have to deal with it.  I don't think
you get the red button for free, you're supposed to do some good
homework for it.

When discussions die, probably this is because noone could come up with
a clear enough problem, and directed discussion to come to some
conclusions.  Controversial topics of course always have proponents and
opponents, but just deciding to go left or right doesn't necessarily
help to improve the situation.  It just makes some happy and others
angry.
