My main plans over the next few years would be to improve communications (and (more importantly?) openness), not just between developers, but also between herds, users, the Council, the Trustees, upstream and so on. I'd particularly want to ensure that there is better communication between us (Gentoo) and projects such as Sabayon Linux and Ainkaboot, as I believe that we can all make use of each other's skills and ideas to provide better distribution(s). I'd encourage "innovative" ideas and projects, such as the inclusion of, for example, XGL/Compiz/Beryl/Compiz-Fusion or whatever it's called these days. I'd also encourage the introduction of targets, as discussed by antarus on the -core ML. And all that kinda stuff. Now, I'm sure that a number of you would prefer everything to be closed, kept private within a number of individuals, but if that *is* the case, why on Earth are you involved with an *Open* Source project, such as Gentoo? Wouldn't you be better off using the likes of Adobe's products and Microsoft's products? Yes, I am quite young. Yes, I could be considered relatively new to the project. Yes, I might make mistakes, but I also *learn* from mistakes, which some people seem to find hard. Being young/relatively new to the project will allow me to potentially bring a fresh view on things, that some of you old fuddy-duddies may or may not have thought of before. And isn't that what Gentoo is about? New ideas, innovation, fresh views, etc, etc. Anyway. Meh. I'm starting to waffle on. And I'm moving house at the beginning of August, I'm also going to France sometime in August. Just some advanced warnings that I may not be around so much during the voting period. Bai!
