4 Yeah, and if I want to know how my government makes descisions on how my life is run I can allways become a high-ranking politician. At this point in time, Gentoo simply does not have an open culture, but a closed one. I am fore an read-only core, but when reading this thread I have a nagging suspicion that this is pointless. The Gentoo devs want to have an ivory tower, and ivory towers can not be scaled. The only way to change is for the inhabitants to come out freely.
