My gut reaction to reading this proposal was no! While I can see a need for reducing the number of people involved with a complaint, I firmly feel that in order to ensure fairness in the complaint process that there needs to be checks and balances in place. The recent changes to split the investigative from the judical side of developer relations and make everything transparent as possible does much to accomplish this. I strongly feel that moving back to a small committee would be a step backwards in that respect. Regards, Paul -- gentoo-devrel@g.o mailing list
