6 No, they're controlled by whoever ends up writing code. If you think
7 there's any control over, say, Portage, try getting an important feature
8 request implemented.

14 No-one is claiming that Paludis is an official Gentoo project. This
15 discussion, however, is about PMS, not Paludis, and the only reason I
16 can see to keep confusing them is political, so please stop doing that.
18 Nor do I define the direction of PMS. The requirements define its
19 direction, and its contributors (the majority of which are Gentoo
20 developers) do the writing.
22 > Paludis does not have a Gentoo Foundation copyright, does PMS?
24 Not currently, but then neither does devmanual, so it's hardly unique
25 in that respect.
