Daniel Robbins' Offer Rejected by Gentoo Foundation Trustee

Filed under
Gentoo

It appears that there are two interim trustees - Grant Goodyear and Paul de Vrieze.

Paul de Vrieze sent me an email supporting the acceptance of my offer and my return. He communicated all this prior to my deadline.

With Grant, the situation is a bit more confusing.

He did ask me today (again, 1/21/2008 - past deadline) if I would be willing to extend the deadline of my offer for an unspecified period of time and put my offer up to a Gentoo Foundation member (1+ yr developer) vote, in which my offer and other competing offers would be presented to members and one would be selected by vote.

So, at this point I don't have a clear or unified answer from the current Foundation trustees. However, I did place a deadline on my offer for a reason - so my offer couldn't be used to drag me into an extremely long-term and political Gentoo decision-making process against my will. Basically, I wanted an answer - "Yes" or "No." Do you want me back? If so, let me get to work. If not - OK, let me know. I'll do other things. I didn't want to be left hanging.

I am left to interpret Grant's response as a "No."
