Daniel Robbins Declines Gentoo Nomination

Filed under
Gentoo

I received this email last night, and I did seriously the nomination. I found Seemant on IRC and bounced the idea off of him of having both of us accept our nominations, post a platform to -nfp - basically saying "if you elect us, this is what we will be doing. x, y, z." The platform would have been blunt, to-the-point, likely extremely popular with users, and likely very controversial with developers. Seemant and I are in basic agreement on what is wrong with Gentoo and what needs to be done to fix it.

The short answer is that Seemant was more interested in pursuing a more independent and non-political direction to help Gentoo, similar to the path I outlined in a prior blog post - working with the community. So I think that by the end of our discussion, we both realized that we would have much more fun and many more opportunities to work together to improve Gentoo by focusing our efforts outside of the existing project.
