How do you think council will magically do that? You're saying "this group of a few devs will do magic that fixes problems" I think that's a very misguided idea, what should happen is that *everyone* gets more involved. Which means ... - blog more so people know what you are doing - recruit people so there are less "single points of failure" - you going on vacation should not stop all progress on KDE - figure out problem areas and make them prettier, even if that's not as much fun. I resurrected a few packages that were neglected, and suddenly users popped up to take care of them. And were immediately recruited :) - lead by example. Want package signing? Figure out prior discussion, provide constructive criticism and then prepare everything so people just have to agree to it

It's the only one with relevant results ;) Take care, Patrick
