Not at all, I have two main points... 1) the board has no  
constitution, and 2) trunk is the worst possible process you could  
have chosen, because

a) it isn't a process it is an excuse to group-hack a monolithic image
b) the philosophy behind trunk is the opposite of where we want to go,  
monolithic vs support all forks with a kernel you can build on.
c) moving targets are the worst possible scenario.
d) it uses tools that are too high level.
e) it is release a year rather then release a month
f) it relies on an elite to manage it
g) it closes out people who cant change things without breaking it.

You keep using trunk, and you close me out.

So far there has been one useful contributor to trunk, and that was  
when Torsten posted a changeset to this list, and I used it.

The fact that I can knock up a brand new process in less than a week  
which is better than trunk, simply shows how bad it is.
