|| ||story submission: Daniel Robbins leaves Gentoo, again|

On Feb 27, you ran the story that Daniel Robbins, creator of
gentoo, had returned to the project. Well, a week later he left again.
You can get the full gory details in  and .
Basically, drobbins got into an epic flamewar with Ciaran McCreesh,
a popular but controversial former gentoo dev who still frequents
gentoo mailing lists. Tempers flared, and drobbins pushed for getting
ciaranm banned from email@example.com mailing list, ostensibly
on the grounds that ciaranm is no longer an official gentoo developer.
The rest of the gentoo devs refused to do so. Then Daniel Robbins
quit the project.
I have a humorous summary of the events in a comment.
-Alex Rostovtsev, longtime gentoo user.
