Really? Lets see

Debian: http://www.debian.org/devel/leader
ArchLinux: http://www.archlinux.org/news/arch-leadership/ ( Had and
still has a leader afaik )

Even though these projects have a single leader, they seem to have a
clear technical direction and they are doing pretty well in development
overall. Better than we do at the moment.

I am still not convinced that a committee of 7 people is flexible enough
to push radical changes. Maybe they are but they need to spend enough
time talking about things before meetings. Does everyone has the time to
spend so many hours on mailing lists? See how many discussions end up to
/dev/null or just forgotten after a while.

How much Gentoo differs from 2007? Ignore the load of EAPIs ( which I
object to the frequency we release them ). Do you still think that the
old style management (that is the one that was formed when Robbins left,
and it is pretty much the same until then) is efficient enough nowadays?
