 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

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

While any efforts you put forth if elected to the council will
appreciated. Let's not take a malicious stance against our current
council. I don't thing they are intentionally alienating, or delaying in
summaries.

Anyone notice no more GWNs? IMHO they like many of us are simply over
committed. So things don't always get done in reasonable or ideal time
frames. I doubt there is any intentional delay in presenting the
summaries and etc.

Then again, their meetings aren't held in private, and one should not
solely rely on summaries. Unless there is a policy stating such
summaries are required or etc.

GWN (was: Re: [gentoo-dev] Nominations open for the Gentoo Council 2007/08)

2007-07-14 Thread Lars Weiler
* William L. Thomson Jr. [EMAIL PROTECTED] [07/07/14 13:29 -0400]:
 Anyone notice no more GWNs?

Well, I noticed it.  And I read the news from June 14 on
http://www.gentoo.org/

Unfortunately, all our GWN-Editors stop working on it after
some months.  It's a really time-consuming job.  Think about
four to five hours just for collecting all articles, put
some glue between them, create the XML and posting it on the
list.  And count in another four to five hours for writing
most of the stuff yourself (which is the default, as the
contributions are very rare).

So, currently we don't have a GWN for two months already.
It was our main publicity medium for telling users about the
current development inside Gentoo, showing the faces of some
devs and notice them about updates in the tree.  We have
other media which can compensate the GWN, like the Forums,
the GLSAs, the dev-mailinglist etc.  But the GWN was a good
compendium of all.

Don't let it die!

I'd like to nominate Marien Zwarts (marienz) for the Council 2007/2008.

I believe he would make an excellent council member, not only does he
have the technical smarts necessary to help give the council the
technical spine it needs, but he also has incredible skills when it
comes to people management and interacting with other members of the
community.
