FWIW, I support Donnie's idea. I would like to see a smaller and more
flexible Council which could assign tasks to interested parties. Right
now, it takes 3-4 months (that is 3-4 meetings) for a Council to decide
things and make substantial progress where other distributions are
moving faster by having a single developer or a small group leading the
project. In my point of view, we need to consider a fundamental change
to our organizational structure. Roy's ideas are very interesting,
however we need to decide on an abstract design before we dig into the
details.
