Just to summarize, for purposes of informing everyone of something I've
Recently we retired 3 developers, the devrel project was not involved as
a group except for the lead, and apparently the developers did not know
anyone was looking at complaints filed against them. I'd like Council
(1) to explain its role in this, if any, (2) explain why it permits such
actions in apparent violation of Gentoo's policy of openness, (3) and
since there seems to be some confusion (on my part at least) how to
interpret Council's role in any appeal IF (I don't really know) Council
played a part in the disciplinary action, please amend Council's
enabling document GLEP 39 to explain how Council handles appeals and
whether or not Council can take or direct disciplinary action in light
of this absolute requirement.
Since this is a general mailing list and some of you might not know what
I'm talking about, this is GLEP 39 and as such it helps define Gentoo
policy and procedure.
