    <pre wrap="">I like the idea of a discussion of this kind and I applaud you for
trying to start a discussion but you are unlikely to start any form of
discussion here because it is not the forum for it.

Also, Gentoo developers are notoriously quiet when it comes to subjects
like this which unfortunately leads to rumours which are no good for anyone.

I can understand why 90% of users would like drobbins back but I would
be willing to say that 0% of the long-term core developers want him back
and Gentoo has a long history of ignoring it's user base and saying "we
give our time for free so we're going to develop how we want."

If you really want to see what core /developers/ think or thought about
Gentoo's internal problems then I suggest you read Spider's and
plasmaroo's resignation emails, they document some problems pretty well.

At the end of the day you're not likely to change anything though.

  <pre wrap=""><!---->I am posting here on NeddySeagoon advice as I had a private
conversation about this stuff with him.

If you have a better idea for a forum to post this in, I am all ears.
