I see Diego's actions as "cleaning up" the QA team. Some members of the QA team have left it because they got tired of how some people in the QA team would not respect some rules and do everything to prevent QA team from being able to enforce them. Unfortunately, Tomas is not the first member to leave because of this. If the actions of Diego make Tomas and the others want to get back to QA, I'll consider this whole issue a success. Markos, the worst thing that I, looking from the outside, noticed about QA was how some members were too quick at using the "QA hammer" to impose their ideas to others, but always found ways not to follow some established policies and not to get them applied to themselves. As a council member, I am very happy to see Diego trying to "fix" QA, doing his best to enforce policies and caring about the tree not being broken. - -- Regards, Jorge Vicetto (jmbsvicetto) - jmbsvicetto at gentoo dot org Gentoo- forums / Userrel / Devrel / KDE / Elections / RelEng -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.17 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJN82rLAAoJEC8ZTXQF1qEPoXQP/22xC9pQmuO47Tavg+mpOiMe Z59O7GGNb47sJb9am8+MHh4r1tP1W/KvMNsb8WzDC+OsqMjfKmyOOjOfyg5xK+VY US722Xj08L3js93qVJs/fI4jsa0GsBZBpdDoJrAZmRco3i42W6mP5KneOyMD5h98 uWnUFP8f7e7qy69usio05gIqn25SCDa5QT3BIL/OB8j9VPLPzdw66Ps41Dvp+u9q JRUXv99oV5WsOauducSz7n2K71RP8bh5mUIMBI01WfUk9AWpzFLlMy4SMQMKatNY Xsm1eJsn4yM9tKzWjTVn8D5rsjnb7zAYLoMPj2Mi5hkSrG7MOZ3X2rFx1PTFwBdi ikkqe8SrK/+otbl9BZG2nw2Oypw9JwlnLf6XGyAeykpz66IOfwZzY1aUIc94LMrb LsJTuDqpEMAaN32Sykt/VQicZBnUTDoWfF70GH1lFFXYC99/YBiqnQuR09w4y0iw U7QZIf1YDqmijDxbnwJeIQN9vKrMm6HZrbeN0YFmEi+MRmp0BQUEDje3vtl+ogud H2iDzLcw3bGkCNJWaRUY8Yl3cS9YuWqA1R5p70gG3QvRmGfM9H9kNLvqD9w5Dn5y HRQg+U6e7cpDA9vcOQTIRZ2ntPEuBoir907sP/dp41XGrffqjsVmzBjBFSKQB5KV 82g/eiuhMfjAVwksTCSP =Pgv4 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
