8 You apparently confuse the trustees and the council. And you apparently
9 did miss the metastructure discussion of last year.
11 Gentoo is made up of projects that do whatever they want inside their
12 projects. That's where quick innovation should happen.
14 The council is elected to take decisions on Gentoo-wide issues that
15 affect multiple projects. GLEPs describe the wanted change, developers
16 discuss on the idea and finally the council decides (usually it
17 validates the consensus if there is one).
19 You don't like them, but they make good references :
22 That said, I agree we lack developers. We in fact don't lack devs, we
23 lack active developers. So some cleanup action should be done.
