Gentoo "Over the past few days, I discovered that the Gentoo Foundation's charter is in the process of being revoked by the state of New Mexico, apparently due to regular paperwork not being filed by the trustees. What this means is that the Gentoo Foundation is currently hanging for its life by a string, and at any day could cease to exist as an entity. That is the very bad news. The good news is that I was able to talk to Grant Goodyear (trustee) this morning on the phone, and I have confirmed that Grant had received my email about the revocation issue that I sent 2 days ago and that he will be resolving this critical issue in the next couple of days by filing the appropriate paperwork with the state of New Mexico, and this paperwork will also remove me as President of the Foundation."

RE[8]: I hope things work out

Member since:

I have just checked and there are ebuilds available for the SVN of KDE4 although if you are arguing they should be marked stable, you crackers.

what i'm arguing is that if gentoo would like to be called a distro of bleeding edge then there should be many developers working and *contributing* back to kde for their next release and ebuild should have already found their way in portage even hard masked so users can test it. That's what we call bleeding edge sir! Who cares for kde's minor releases...
That is what we call *innovation*, *research* and *contribution*.
A common response that i see in many bugs: "well we will see what upstream has to say..."
Most of developers do not care any more to contribute something back, fix bugs or backport a fix (backport in gentoo = lol).

But again the problem is *NOT* developers its administration read the damn post.

I have already express my feelings for trustees... :p
