5 Yep. Part of the problem is that we're now a large, extremely popular Linux
6 meta-distribution with "mom and pop" community development procedures for
7 everything. They were appropriate when we were smaller, but now that
8 quite a few people are thinking that we're the next big thing, people get
9 paranoid and they want more disclosure.
11 That's fine and understandable. We are hackers, and our primary focus has
12 always been coding and improving Gentoo. Now we're looking at what we've
13 created, realizing how big it's become, and taking the necessary steps to
14 reorganize to address the scale and popularity of our project.
16 If anyone on this list has any suggestions or areas that they would like
17 addressed, please email Seemant Kulleen at seemant@g.o. He is keeping
18 a master list of all user feedback relating to "growth issues," and his
19 list will be used as a primary source of inspiration for upcoming plans
20 to improve our accountability and responsiveness to our various user
21 communities.
