That's not how it works -- we know this from last time Gentoo recruited a whole load of people without verifying their abilities. With lots of new developers, what little time skilled developers already have ends up being spent fixing all the screwups made by people who were only recruited to make up numbers. Gentoo needs better developers, not more developers. -- Ciaran McCreesh
