It has EVERYTHING to do with the current proposal, Why ? Well because you
are having resource concerns and said you spent a bunch of money beefing
them up. Now you were looking at code and other things that might be done.
Further YOU did say that efficiency was at issue, and that is ALWAYS a
trade-off with resources, time and money.

So yeah, this proposal is based on needs, and those needs are based on
resources. And you NEED funding to continue to grow. Period.

I am sorry if you feel that Arch linux can continue to grow with what
amounts to funding from your income and time form your day. It cannot.
