26 Sounds like a good idea, here are my questions:
28 What do council-nominees think about the current lack of manpower in Gentoo as a
29 whole, and how do you propose to confront this situation, with facts?
31 In the same line that previous question, what global decisions do you consider
32 necessary in order to solve the manpower issue?
34 Finally, and this is just a personal opinion, right now I see many devs trying
35 to pull Gentoo to different sides, but what I can't see is a set of common
36 beliefs that join us all in the same vision of what Gentoo should be or do in
37 the near future... how could you address this issue?
39 And if you don't consider this an issue, because of being a community-driven
40 project etc, how else do you explain the lack of public information about what
41 Gentoo has done to improve the issues it had 8~10 years ago? If you search
42 Gentoo in google, besides our official pages, there are a bunch of articles
43 addressing Gentoo issues that seem to be old but are not "solved" properly
44 anywhere. Right now I have to go to work, but I'll try to add some references
45 later today or when requested.
