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."

Because Paperwork has little to do with Leadership...and nothing to do with community, in fact suggesting there is *any* link is bizarre.


now imagine drobbins like a cruel man who has just found out that he is still the president and take over the project just like that...
Leadership has the responsibility for all small and big issues that demands a solution.
If they don't like their job then thnkbbhf

"Leadership has the responsibility for all small and big issues that demands a solution."

I'm glad that you have moved away from the *community* lie, and have focussed on leadership.

I said *little* to do with leadership. Regardless of *any* example, it is not the *role* of a leader to maintain an *administration* role. It can be only considered a failing of a *particular* leader at not fulfilling that position or assigning responsibility, and even then those should be delegated. I'll use an example.

"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"

Thats the critical issue...If you even know where to begin doing something like that you are a better man than me. I actually think finding someone who understands, and is able to do that is *tricky*
