http://all-things-linux.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/chakra-gnulinux-interview-with.html Q.) Anke, you have taken over as project lead from Phil. When and how did this come about? Do you elect a new lead for a fixed term similar to Debian and Fedora, or how does it work, and does this have any consequences for the direction the distribution is going? Chakra no longer uses a team-leader, so neither I, or anyone else on the team has such a title. We feel there is no need for such a role, we are all over the world, contributing in times that work best for each of us, working on sections of Chakra, that fit any of our strengths the best. Naturally, there are those who are in charge of certain sections of Chakra, so it has grown to the current situation that there are about 5-6 teams (examples arts, akabei, KDE, ISO releases), each of us contact the main person(s) of any such team for changes to that part of the project. LINUX in TRUE SENSE. This will turn out to be the best distro in KDE ever. Their updates are well planned and yet not hurried. Chakra system is stable and lighter than many other mainstream distros, for KDE, its blazing fast even on NETBOOKS.
