1 All,
3 The Gentoo Foundation Inc. has been approached by a few large Gentoo
4 users about purchasing advertising on the side bar.
5 They are not in the IT industry so cannot support us in the traditional
6 way, by donating their own product.
8 The trustees anticipate that more approaches of this nature will be
9 received and view it as a sign of Gentoo maturing.
11 Recognising that this would be a break with tradition, by allowing even
12 major users to contribute to Gentoo in this way the trustees determined
13 to put the question to a vote of Foundation members.
15 The recording date for the vote will be 29th November. To vote, your
16 Foundation membership must be approved on or before that date.
18 Voting will be from 1 December to 11 December, to enable the result to
19 be available for the next Trustee meeting on 13 December.
21 The motion to be voted on will be
22 Should major Gentoo users be permitted to purchase ads on the sidebar
23 - Vote yes or No
25 The trustees recommend that the motion on the ballot is supported.
27 On behalf of the Gentoo Foundation Inc.
29 --
30 Regards,
32 Roy Bamford (Neddyseagoon)
33 President
