10 Nah, this is how things work. Really gentoo-core is not that interesting, but
11 there are some things that need to be more or less private. One reason is
12 that there is less chance to fall on your face in a private list (well a bit
13 private). Another big point is that gentoo needs to speak with one voice on
14 certain issues. For such a thing first internal consensus has to be reached.
15 A private core list actually increases openness in such cases as else only a
16 smaller group of people would be involved in such issues.
