What’s missing from latest GMN

Filed under: blag — Tags: , , — Fernando J. Pereda @ 11:07 am

Latest Gentoo Montly Newsletter is missing something… what is it?

Yeah, right. It doesn’t mention the fact that the council missed their metting and they should get the boot.

Gentoo is a joke these days. Trying to stuff shit under the carpet is surely not going to work forever.

  1. You could have asked for that information to be added to the GMN when calls for feedback were sent to -core.

  2. Which wouldn’t had helped anyway. Nobody is going to convince me that whoever wrote the GMN forgot about the second meeting and all the slacker debate. Really.

    This is trying to hide mud from users, and users aren’t stupid, they know what the hell is going on.

  3. At least if you had asked on -core, we could know that the authors of the GMN purposefully ignored the slacker debate. As it stands, you are just speculating about what they thought.

  4. No, I’m not speculating. I’m clearly stating the fact that they didn’t write it and I’m 100% sure it isn’t a mistake. Because said meeting is mentioned, what happened in that meeting is omitted, though.

  5. Indeed:

    Instead of waiting till the next regular meeting, because of its urgency, we scheduled a special session next week at the same time.

  6. which meeting? There was no date agreed on or was there?, Nor was there sent a ‘reminder’ mail to the -dev list. Or did I overlooked it in the archives?
    So there wasn’t a meeting. Just a intention.

    However, even if there was a ‘meeting’ not saying something to correct an error when you could and then point fingers, looks fishy on your part.

  7. There was a meeting scheduled. They just missed it.

    Trying to tell others, that it wasn’t a meeting is just another attempt to hide the fact, that they messed up.

    Oh, and Diego even said, that he didn’t read the Summary.
    (And, that he won’t in the future.)
    Clearly he doesn’t really care enough to be in the council, does he?

  8. “This is trying to hide mud from users”

    that’s what every newsletter is about, right? a bit of marketing speech here and there, focusing on better/more important things to write about.

  9. That they missed a meeting is bad. That they neglect their own rules is even worse. But the fact that we keep on whining about it, is a shame.

    And indeed, organization news never reports bad stuff happening, allways just the good.

    Lets just see to it that neglection of rules and missing of meetings doesn’t happen on a regular base, and continue to try bringing good stuff in, k? I’m kinda fed up with the dramaqueens and emo people around Gentoo.

  10. @energyman: It was published in the meeting summary, so it was decided. The fact that council members such as Diego don’t reed the minutes of the summary is what brought us here.

    @yoshi314: Unfortunately… yes…

  11. Wow, such vitriol, such bad people, such slackers shouldn’t be allowed air, huh?
    Especially as there’s such a long queue of absolutely perfect people just banging at the door promising they’ll never make any mistakes when they rule the world.

    … sorry, I mean council.

  12. Mistakes are perfectly reasonable and definitely allowed. They just get to follow the rules.

  13. @Jim T:
    The problem is not, that they did something wrong.
    The problem is, that they don’t (at least some parts) think, that they did something wrong and that they are trying to ignore and circumvent the thing.
