Gentoo Daniel Robbins, original creator of the Gentoo project, offers a solution to fix the recent leadership crisis at Gentoo: "I have received permission from my employer to return and serve as President of the Gentoo Foundation, renew its charter, and then work in some capacity to help to get Gentoo going in the right direction from a legal, community and technical perspective."

Its good to see he is taking charge again, the community, while still active didnt seem as steady as it once was, hope to see more active development come to gentoo, and show why it is a great unique meta-distro.

He hasn't taken charge yet. This is just a proposal. The Gentoo developers and trustees (if there are any left) have to agree to it, which doesn't seem likely since his plan is to get rid of them.

I'm just a user, but I'm all for a benevolent dictator. It's clear that Gentoo needs direction.
