Your Choices with Gentoo

Filed under

There is a large interest among the Gentoo and larger Linux user community for me to come back as Chief Architect. And recently, I found out that in theory - maybe with a bit of fighting - the position was still available to me, as I was still registered as the President of the Gentoo Foundation up until recently.

However, there's lots of reasons why trying to jump back into the Chief Architect role this isn't the right thing to do. First, for better or worse, the trustees have been overseeing the organization of Gentoo for over three years. And the developers have set up a council to provide technical direction for Gentoo (the council is elected by the developers.) The trustees and council haven't asked me to return to the project as Chief Architect, and I do not expect them to any time soon.

So, if I were to return to the project, I would need to return by force.
