I strongly disagree on this since I support that any change to GLEP39 will require a global dev vote, which means that even if the council starts a discussion and guides the process for GLEP39 reform, in the end it will fall to the full developer community to approve it or not. I do think that the council should have an active role in GLEP39 reform and that it's natural for the council to "lead" on this process. If we're able to get this moving forward, I would be open to having the council nominate a person or committee to spearhead the process. - -- Regards, Jorge Vicetto (jmbsvicetto) - jmbsvicetto at gentoo dot org Gentoo- forums / Userrel / Devrel / KDE / Elections / RelEng -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.17 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - iQIcBAEBCAAGBQJOOLHkAAoJEC8ZTXQF1qEP9SAP/1cWsfXQOGA8igd87PBZ3kHg FxtbzH6On68v+8HsaZnPsFhnb/ApX3qE3V9XF0I+oVUEl5qImjKnxVedvS0j5SB2 yh/NHXWs75jzpjCr5C81afSO47KFm3AmmnM3RllUYT6pVUe5RKF2IcYQcFf3MdsY uyE1S1w80lF3sg8iuBWZEF8X3cQ9p5nZ4UiPy99Ch0rkYokc6XI+fppX6vYrRncE sk/N0rYBN1c4YNkCI/xj7dt0XYwkeA9rLOb+o519sBhz7nWZvQdYkyNkOYGoQT2H XCxzoTOZ0P30TVdxMFANuqG6bLuk/0wWnAUlBJR9YD6MazQbovxepI5lmIigRnrH la0s06FiVJcE8AUySyrBng/woVrZU2Sw2ZRZvbgI004VXDL43tj03e0TcP1WWemS UoCQBNOxWRSObKy7NKpAobftzjsdtEQytEwIfjITCHu+Ql9PyRT/Oc7x2GMunJDK yi1koCi227OEob9Q8EqHjFlS8WXS8RjF2mNYi/D8NgzlOLAuqSmpJP6XUT+awJOG h7WxDuXuK+tOB+TIwHsbVGx9PJ/jeZdYdM7cXnQk+YuAogJvkD9XcA4z6sCGcyLt /Wsg1p1j0cbW8KtwW/WmdKWSV75Q0FXzs7y+8UM6401odNoSs0Qak+H0lnGD3yqc OijkHtKfbzbZPogkGUZZ =LglL -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
