16 I appreciate the nomination by you and others, but after a whole month
17 of thinking on this, I must decline, mostly for reasons of time commitment.
19 Council actually isn't a job I'd want to do; I'm not out to "be in
20 charge." I'm sure I'd take the same approach that I would to everything
21 else I do; do the job that's before me, but I don't think I'd be able to
22 devote enough time to do a *good* job. I've no problem doing any
23 necessary keelhauling etc., but I'm not sure that I have the time. And
24 no matter how fast I'd try to learn, I'm not starting off with the same
25 detailed knowledge of ebuilds and Portage that the other candidates have.
27 Meanwhile, I'll continue making a difference within Gentoo by doing
28 documentation for any and all interested parties, and anything else I
29 can contribute to, like the GWN. It's not council work, but I'll
30 continue to try to make Gentoo better for everyone, at least in my
31 little corner. :)
