And today, he left again. A short visit it was.
I really fail to understand how anyone gets done anything with all the vitriol on the ML these days.
Daniel Robbins leaves Gentoo

That's some really conceited behavior from all sides of the argument. Shame all around yet again. I wonder how Gentoo will solve its troll problem...?

I had to quit the boat too and moved to Ubuntu, even though it's not 100% perfect. I love the gentoo concept (no releases, source based) but I hate the crap that comes with every other update. When Daniel returned, I was hopeful things would go back to "normal". I sure hope he finds a project where his contributions will be recognized.
