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."

well that doesn't fit well for devs who contribute like all the others like you said, does it? :p
please see the big picture. They are unstaffed (that is a fact) and management do nothing about it.
Other projects have leaders and foundations (openbsd anyone? they just created their own) and we denied both.
If you want to say that everything is good with the project, go for it, but it will keep smelling inside.
You want to help gentoo stay alive and kick ass like the old days?
Be more demanding...
