Bye Gentoo!
It's with a bit of sadness and some relief that I'm finally retiring from Gentoo.

I've been a Gentoo developer for nearly 4 years now and I like to at least pretend that I've made some important contributions to Gentoo during that time. I've had a lot of fun but my frustrations have grown these past several months and I've been entertaining the idea about retiring for probably 6 months now. The past couple months the desire to leave Gentoo have become much stronger and I think it's finally time for me and Gentoo to go our seperate ways.

I think I've put my "fingerprint" on Gentoo in quite a few important ways but lately I've come to the realisation that I probably can't do any more for Gentoo. No matter how hard I try fighting for what I feel is right we seem to end up with petty fights, flamewars or what I consider even worse - people simply ignore what I'm working hard towards.

So I think it's high time that I leave the project and start looking for another project where I can contribute something important and not just try to keep the project from going in what I think is bad directions.

I'll try to reach all the projects I'm leaving over the next few days and see if I can pass off my work in a reasonable manner. I probably won't be around much on irc but if you really need to contact me you can do so at bryan.ostergaard@gmail.com.

Good luck to all of you and may Gentoo development be as much fun as it used to be for me.
