Donnie, The cynic in me sees the secret-proctors project taking shape. I have a great deal of empathy with the ideal. However, its better if these 'stop being a dickhead' messages come privately from a respected college than from a comparative stranger. Gentoo is big enough now so that many devs never work/speak with one another, which is a part of the problem you are trying to address here. I don't think we need a group to do this - we already have one. The developer pool, we need to raise awareness. It needs publicity to encourage everyone to participate, something like a 'don't be a dickhead day'. Ned, I think very few ex-proctors would be jumping in for a second helping after the way they were supported by the council that created them. - -- Regards, Roy Bamford (NeddySeagoon) a member of gentoo-ops forum-mods treecleaners -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.7 (GNU/Linux) iD8DBQFHtKiFTE4/y7nJvasRApfMAKDlB0V2WKnt07QtheFXHTO8Twnf2gCfR3eT C+aNli8dtZZF+kvw3+/GCAE= =2R4N -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-council@l.g.o mailing list
