10 I was on the Council for several years in a row. When I first got on, I
11 was super enthusiastic and always came prepared. However, after a few
12 years, I burned out. I noticed the same in other council members that
13 slowly petered away during the year. Since at any given time there are
14 only a few enthusiastic gentoo devs who would step up to do council
15 work, and that incumbents tend to be re-elected, I'm not surprised that
16 this is a chronic problem.
18 The best advice is to underline mgorny's point and recognize that there
19 is real work involved and that it is important.
