Really? Lets see Debian: ArchLinux: ( Had and still has a leader afaik ) Even though these projects have a single leader, they seem to have a clear technical direction and they are doing pretty well in development overall. Better than we do at the moment. I am still not convinced that a committee of 7 people is flexible enough to push radical changes. Maybe they are but they need to spend enough time talking about things before meetings. Does everyone has the time to spend so many hours on mailing lists? See how many discussions end up to /dev/null or just forgotten after a while. How much Gentoo differs from 2007? Ignore the load of EAPIs ( which I object to the frequency we release them ). Do you still think that the old style management (that is the one that was formed when Robbins left, and it is pretty much the same until then) is efficient enough nowadays? - -- Regards, Markos Chandras / Gentoo Linux Developer / Key ID: B4AFF2C2 -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.17 (GNU/Linux) iQIcBAEBCgAGBQJOO+1pAAoJEPqDWhW0r/LC6lcQAJjgqP9UNxFK2G/KD2OE+xz/ yKhmU60k9cpQBWBc5agE4X2mnbkz5U+24fPI7xfhKWhtWu1Z10qz8LZ8RPE153Jn F1Y0fLqvRzHat25U2QWDjUARTjVz54EiWY1q9jSgqUJ/dC1FvBaPiCUIXXfK7cLf ioaY/mRiOkQj4Y3flXTRFllm2qSR3XD/bQUE+KvAU1v43XYKgLP6idkJBX/JLABZ yS5y8JjIospOwwkMpJ0HOWXTjeuW4aTXfPnXevsU4IPBEd92Jhe+UaiNPBEiWlfy JrhGDVc2k/QfgmSq/Ycuf80OTNwA6iOWc8cshdxKEjpgxrKyrS9/kUjMaGHXXm31 0LJ4ecWd57Yoo55zpMhUHULzhE8qrqmp96vjyXBqK4zp/SxOpz5rQZgjOs7cFsoD esiapFDCBmZtjSe9JlVoDmYkyY1fOwASVVCD0iWUuM1+kqy5Ztb//RIVZkLupGpF z8RypnURpbG5uy/DiYF+KaRAxjma2xPpotz8guzJvnUWrOAlvx6muFo8U79Hxw+/ iXOjl8CKRoR1KmbvsLqWvJP3X7Gg3fN708VCvI00V4PzlFlqelbzW9065fLOkB/A Xs+7wYdbte6gORTe9miBdCESXI72QKVIyTg57rlPfhrhl7o30MvbN7mhMG3LhROE DL8gYrt8qQuO1cia6Ra4 =rnUK -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
