I think the time of 30 days is somewhat short for hiatus. In europe it is not unusual to take holidays for over 3 or sometimes 4 weeks. Getting awfully close to this limit. Of course such an hiatus should then be announced. I would put 45 days (or 1 1/2 month) as more appropriate. Paul -- Paul de Vrieze Gentoo Developer Mail: pauldv@g.o Homepage:
