Subject: [gentoo-dev] reinvigorating Gentoo games development
Date: Tue, 26 Aug 2014 05:33:30
1 Hi all,
3 For those not following council meeting discussions, I volunteered to
4 help new devs join the games herd/team in order to foster discussion
5 about its future path and move towards electing a more active team lead
6 in a month or so.
8 Just to make things clear, although I'm currently in the games herd I
9 have no interest or time to be lead and don't work regularly enough on
10 games in Gentoo for that to make any sense. I just want to help bring in
11 new devs that feel left out from the current, often unresponsive team to
12 aid development.
14 I imagine several potentially interested devs will want to change some
15 current game policies (such as seen in [1]) before they consider joining
16 so there may be a chicken and egg situation. However, anyone interested
17 in games on Gentoo should either respond here or ping me on IRC and I'll
18 try to organize things.
20 Finally, I don't want non-devs and the community at large to feel left
21 out either so hopefully discussions can include more on reviewing
22 contributions, overlays, and other ways for the community to interact
23 positively. I know this has been brought up in several previous threads
24 (such as [2]), but most of them seemed to trail off without any firm
25 resolution or guidance for interested community members.
27 Thanks,
28 Tim
