I appreciate the nomination by you and others, but after a whole month of thinking on this, I must decline, mostly for reasons of time commitment. Council actually isn't a job I'd want to do; I'm not out to "be in charge." I'm sure I'd take the same approach that I would to everything else I do; do the job that's before me, but I don't think I'd be able to devote enough time to do a *good* job. I've no problem doing any necessary keelhauling etc., but I'm not sure that I have the time. And no matter how fast I'd try to learn, I'm not starting off with the same detailed knowledge of ebuilds and Portage that the other candidates have. Meanwhile, I'll continue making a difference within Gentoo by doing documentation for any and all interested parties, and anything else I can contribute to, like the GWN. It's not council work, but I'll continue to try to make Gentoo better for everyone, at least in my little corner. :)
