Daniel Robbins Won't Fork Gentoo

Filed under
Gentoo

Today I am making an attempt to refocus on other commitments besides Gentoo and get back to a more normal and productive life. I enjoy having conversations with Gentoo developers on what can be done to improve the Foundation and project as a whole, but there is so much to say, and while it is productive, it is also very time consuming.

For those who are kind of tired of the existing structure - well, I totally feel your pain. I will not be forking the project, and you may be bummed about that, but at the same time I am going to find effective ways to help the larger Gentoo community.

Some people still want a fork, and I really don't think that the answer to this is for me to lead a fork, nor do I really have the time to do it.

The world wants a revolution not lock-in. Read more
