9 It's one thing to make a contribution or submit a patch - it's quite
10 another to be actively and very significantly involved in a key
11 technical project that is supposedly defining an interoperability spec
12 for the key distinguishing feature of Gentoo, namely Portage.
14 Right now, you're effectively doing an end-run around the entire
15 Gentoo management structure. Fortunately for you, it doesn't look like
16 anyone cares.
18 Really, I find this weird and ambiguous and you should probably be
19 reinstated as a dev or be bumped off of PMS, which should be managed
20 by Gentoo developers only.

29 I'm also very interested to find out about this. I would be
30 disappointed to find that the Foundation has chosen to not fulfill or
31 neglect one of the key purposes for which it was created.
