There wasn't a vote, since the number of nominations equalled the number of candidates. There was a thread on gentoo-core mailing list with the nominees, and the movement seemed to be toward simply accepting the nominees as trustees. Thanks, -- Seemant Kulleen [EMAIL PROTECTED] Gentoo

about is the council -- the council posts to -dev before and after every meeting (and puts meeting logs up on the website within days of a meeting). I suppose the webpage itself could be updated, but I'm unsure what else the council can do. Perhaps you have some ideas? Thanks! -- Seemant Kulleen

OK wait, on your servers, are you actually planning to *use* any of the ebuilds in Sunrise's overlay? If not, how is it a concern? I personally don't use any of them, and my system is running perfectly fine. Let's not forget that nobody is shoving Sunrise down anyone's throat... -- Seemant

makes you think four people can? I think, again, people are not looking at Sunrise as a training ground. It's better to start teaching people QA, and doing so in an active rather than a passive medium. Again, I haven't yet seen a reason to kill Sunrise. -- Seemant Kulleen [EMAIL PROTECTED] Gentoo
