How do you think council will magically do that?
You're saying "this group of a few devs will do magic that fixes problems"

I think that's a very misguided idea, what should happen is that
*everyone* gets more involved. Which means ...
- blog more so people know what you are doing
- recruit people so there are less "single points of failure" - you
going on vacation should not stop all progress on KDE
- figure out problem areas and make them prettier, even if that's not as
much fun. I resurrected a few packages that were neglected, and suddenly
users popped up to take care of them. And were immediately recruited :)
- lead by example. Want package signing? Figure out prior discussion,
provide constructive criticism and then prepare everything so people
just have to agree to it



> Creating activity is not the only solution.
It's the only one with relevant results ;)

Take care,

Patrick
