What's the recovery plan if other projects don't function properly?
e.g. Documentation. The install guides still describe setting up 
baselayout-1, three months after baselayout-2 was stabilised. See 
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=4&chap=1 
Code Listing 1.2: Examples for /etc/conf.d/net

Hmm. maybe thats a bug as 
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=1&chap=8 is 
correct for baselayout-2.

Anyway, I'm sure you get the idea.

Will the council fix these things too ?
Josh, this is just one example I'm familiar with. not a poke at you 
being the entire docs team.

Why are devrel and QA special?

To continue with my example, I would suggest that docs are much more 
important as they are first point of contact for new users and without 
users Gentoo will die.
