Put in another way, being that the list of duties I'm going to resign 
maintaining our roundup. The Leader shouldn't order around people nor 
have demigod powers (see why I had been really offended by the 
boss/employees analogy on -cvs).

My list is quite simple and had been around since the first outbreak of

Gentoo policy w/out the code of conduct and other frills.

Given how many developers are shared between the projects I think the 
relations are pretty much expected to be the same.
