please read the undertakers page and the resolution of the retirement bugs carefully as you seem to be confused about our policy to retired developers. The only case where re-admittance is subject to particular scrutiny is when a developer is retired for disciplinary reasons. As you can read in the second email template[1], we specifically inform the developer that: "If we do retire you, it's pretty easy to come back when you are ready. Just do the ebuild/end-quiz again and you're back on. You also always have the option of contributing as your schedule allows via proxy or bugzilla." We also make sure to mention in the retirement bugs that a developer can always return as seen on an example bug[2]. My apologies to Caleb to link directly to his bug, but I needed one concrete reply to show undertakers work. [1] - [2] -
