Subject: [gentoo-project] Should Council members be pillars of the community?
Date: Fri, 26 Jun 2020 10:47:24
1 Hello,
3 Here's another question for the nominees.
5 Back when I was on the Council, there was a time that I've been
6 approached that my behavior is not appropriate for a public Gentoo
7 representative, even if the comments in question had nothing to do with
8 the Council matters.
10 Today, I would like to ask: do you think that Council members should
11 lead the community by example? Should their reputation be untainted,
12 should they be able to withhold their anger even when they believe they
13 have reasons enough to attack others? Should they not participate
14 in flames, unless only to extinguish them?
16 Is it considered acceptable that a nominee for election calls other
17 developers inhumane or delusional on the public mailing lists? Is it
18 good that he throws false accusations without verifying them?
20 Is it fine that yet another nominee runs an election campaign focused
21 on attacking other developers, and apparently trying to get votes
22 by finding 'a common enemy'?
24 Should such people become the public faces of Gentoo? Or should they
25 maybe be professional enough to withdraw their candidacy after
26 discrediting themselves in the middle of election?
