Well, Gentoo's founder and creator went to work at Redmond and decided to
leave after a while (to work for a .NET company, as he must).
As for Gael Duval, if you look at his homepage, you will see evidence that he
takes pride in the new identity (Mandriva). The only suspicion that I have
is that he starts Web sites, perhaps at the time/capacity expense of his day

When people feel privileged, they tend to have less pressure to produce. My
only guess would be that Gael no longer took the job seriously. It's merely
a guess. By the way, I resigned from one of my jobs yesterday. I had no
pressure to produce and I left before tensions rose.

Best wishes,
