How can someone miss a meeting?

Filed under
Gentoo

Well, shit happens people, and it seems like the extraordinary meeting that was supposedly scheduled yesterday night found Donnie and Wernfried (amne) alone in the channel.

As people seems to either look at this as a sign of the council misbehaviour, or just as an escape route from an hostile council, I’d like to let people know how it is possible at all that this happens.

Let me start saying that yeah this was a bad mistake and that it’s all the council members faults. Although this counts in both Donnie and Wernfried as well as us five missing the meeting. This does not mean, though, that this was done intentionally or that the council doesn’t care.

During March meeting we already seen that it’s sometimes difficult for all of us to remember the exact day of the meeting. Myself, I find it particularly easier to remember an appointment when it happens the same day every month (like my credit’s card bill due the 5th), rather than the same day of the week of the given week every month, which is the schedule that Gentoo Council meetings always had since it was enacted almost three years ago.

For this reason we activated ourselves in two direction:

Also:

Since Diego is deleting my comments from his moderation queue, I'll try to give my impression of his post here. But first I'll state my opinion on the matter.

I think the council made a mistake (admitedly, not a big one) by missing his latest meeting. And I don't particularly care about why it happened. Also, I don't think they have to give either reasons or excuses, this kind of stuff might happen, and that's all.
