I am following this issue and the bugs with Samuli and Arfrever etc. I just don't have anything to say. If we feel elections are necessary, I will participate. I think I am up to speed on all of what's been going on enough to voice my opinion intelligently. As to whether or not we need elections early, I don't think we do. I personally consider this entire issue to be a giant pile of nonsense. We are arguing over ChangeLogs. I can think of so many more important important issues than that to find solutions to. We also can easily automate ChangeLog generation etc as long as we want to log everything, in which case this entire fiasco would be moot. (There are also other solutions to this set of problems we could consider.) However, at the moment, the only thing I see is a pissing match over the current policy. Both sides have technical merits. However, we are creating a very public scene with all of this, and that is something I down right do not approve of. When we want to get back to the technical issue itself, I will gladly voice my opinion. I like to think that QA is a decent team of people. I've worked with most people on the team in the past couple months. Having said that, I don't think spending an hour or so every month or two making sure everyone is on the same page would be a bad idea. I also don't think formalizing some of the procedures etc would be a bad idea. There was one idea I thought was interesting on bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=368097 comment 51. None the less, that is all a topic for a separate thread.
