the first GLEP is listed as Active, yet its information is out of date.  it
talks about GLEP editors and Gentoo Managers, neither of which exist anymore. 
basically, it still refers to the old management structure and not the
Council.  so rather than confuse people (since we explicitly quiz people on

 accepted.  However, wherever possible, long open-ended discussions on public

 should use their discretion here.
