Rich,

Thats an interesting concept that I only partly agree with. There is 
one Gentoo. True. The Council heads it up *techncially*. That's 
fairly important. If the council makes a bad decision on behalf of 
Gentoo, its the Foundation that gets sued and ultimately, the trustees 
who go to jail as they have legal responsibility for Gentoo.

Its a little be more subtle than that as the groups represented by the 
two leadership bodies are not the same but the basic idea is unchanged.

So far, there has been no friction between the two bodies and they 
operate well in their apparently isolated areas. As a trustee, I have a 
vested interest in making this arrangement work.

[Note] Its a good idea for anyone making decisions on behalf of Gentoo 
to be a Gentoo Foundation member.
