18 no offense, but this is one of the worst proposals i've ever read on
19 this list; why? because, one of gentoo's major problems is that it is
20 becoming more and more a toy exclusively for its own developers. by
21 banning non-dev contributors from this list some of you may feel better
22 - but gentoo as a whole will probably suffer. silencing people doesn't
23 make their opinions invalid. what gentoo needs in my opinion is a clear
24 structure, strict and unmistakable rules about what $dev may do and what
25 $dev must not do, and ways to enforce these rules; this, and not
26 moderating or restricting communication channels, would improve the way
27 people are working together.
29 as this may be my last post - and it seems to fit in quite nicely - i
30 also want to say:
32 gentoo's problem is not that ciaranm is a troll. the problem is that
33 ciaranm is not a troll.
