Sorry, Im sick at the moment and my brain is a little fuzzy,
wrote am email and sent it to Ryan instead of the entire list.

But first to answer a question Ryan asked me which was a good one.

It was about 50/50.
I was busy, but also increasingly disapointed with the pace and response.
I would like things to pick up where they left off, but its not
entirely up to me.

I just didnt feel comfortable making command disicions anymore if I
was not leader,
and althought people voted for me I was not made leader so I didnt
know what to do.
Command disicions need to be made. We need some clear leader.

At the time I was working pretty hard for the project and everyone saw that.
Its been what? Four weeks? Five? Still no leader. Im disapointed.

Here is the email I sent to ryan

To be honest I think this is a big reason the project has stalled.
The last major thing we discussed was leadership
and I volunteered and got three votes and then nothing happened.

I guess I was kinda waiting for something to happen
but just nothing ever did.
I talked to Matthias, but just nothing happened at all.

It seems like everything just takes forever, it took us a couple
months of begging just to get this mailing list. It ended up taking so
long that I feel
like I lost a lot of steam and momentum.

Now it seems like its going to take equally long for the community counsul to
appoint a leader because there is just a million hoops you have to jump through.

Sorry for being negative, maybe Im just disapointed.

Im a really busy guy, and I like to be involved with projects that are
interesting and active, but Im starting to feel the ubuntu community
is hamstrung with all the red tape.

*disclaimer: Im tired and sick and sore, so maybe Im being overly negative*
