Why the SFC Should Not Manage Gentoo Foundation

Filed under
Gentoo

I am of the opinion that Gentoo should not contract the SFC to manage the Foundation for the following reasons.

-With responsible governance there is no real need to be underthe umbrella of another larger organization. -The SFC may or may not have the funding, capacity, or longevity to handle as large an organization as Gentoo.

-The SFC will surely take some Gentoo generated funding away from Gentoo to cover administrative costs, etc, that, given responsible governence, could be used for the greater benefit of Gentoo and the Gentoo community.

Why would we need to belong to a larger organization to do these things? Why do we need an organization, like the SFC, to “manage” Gentoo. Perhaps we ought simply solicit them for /pro bono/ legal assistance in emergency situations.

I am of the opinion that Gentoo should welcome the return of Daniel Robbins, but in a somewhat more limited sense than his recent offer.

"The results highlight the fact that old school AV technology is powerless to halt virulent, mutating forms of malware like ransomware and a new more dynamic approach to endpoint protection is needed.

After installing a number of alternative desktops and trying them all for a couple hours each, I finally settled on using Cinnamon until Plasma is patched and stable. Here's what I found. Read more
