I apologise if I did something inappropriate, but I want to assure you that I always tried to make it clear that this were just my questions and that I asked them withing the gentoo context so I could get a more precise information for me to know how things would work (and then, because I liked it, I decided to share it a the whole, even when it overlapped with already available information). So please do accept my apologies as I made contact with them just so I could get a clear picture on the role they could play within gentoo's context and then just because it made sense to me, I made the proposal to rethink about them adding new information, but nothing more than this. And gathered the information I needed I will not inquire any more on the subject unless the foundation will want me obtain more information.

Yes, I completely agree with this point, I also sow it as a bit of a drawback, but I also understand the reasons that made them require one personal contact from each project. Kindest regards, Yuri.
