Linuxhelp _ News _ Daniel Robbins Resigns From Gentoo Dev.

Posted by: Corey Apr 28 2004, 08:06 AM

In some sad news yesterday, the Gentoo community received word that Cheif Architect of the Gentoo project, Daniel Robbins has decided to resign from his responsibilities from within Gentoo. Before leaving he set up a non-profit organization that will own all copyrights of Gentoo.

QUOTE
"Gentoo Linux's Chief Architect, Daniel Robbins, announced today that he is resigning from his development responsibilities for Gentoo. Drobbins will be staying with Gentoo until the not-for-profit (NFP) organization is established, at which point the newly-chosen NFP board of directors will take over governance. We are extremely sad to see Daniel Robbins depart, and we both wish him the best in his new endeavors and promise that the door will always be open for his return."


This is sad news for those who contribute to the Gentoo distribution (myself included), Daniel has put a lot of time into one of the best distributions available. We here at Linuxhelp.ca would like to wish Daniel all the best in the future, and thanks for everything you have done for the community.
