Michał first and foremost gets his hands dirty with actual work - bugfixing, package bumps, countless eclass/profiles/infra improvements. This is the 'anything useful' that was mentioned and is what is needed and most appreciated in Gentoo. Sending emails on mailing list with whatever brilliant idea just one might come up with while not being willing/able to realize with own hands - especially when related to meta problems like this one - is not kind of contribution Gentoo needs. -- regards MM
