Yes... we can too!
Recently I saw somewhere a link to Google Video about a very
How Open Source Projects Survive Poisonous People (And
You Can Too). So please, if you didn't see this go and
watch it now: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4216011961522818645.
It is a little bit large (~50 min) but I found some nice
information from real experiences that could really help to
improve our communication inside Debian.
So, for the curious and impatient, it is a Google TechTalk
with Ben Collins-Sussman & Brian W. Fitzpatrick, SubVersion
Developers, based on their experiences they show situations
that can drain Project resources and they gave valuable
tips, ideas and directions on how to protect the "Attention
and Focus" of the Project. It is very
interesting to find a lot of factors and points that we can
see from time to time on Debian. Don't get me wrong, I'm
really not whining, I don't think that whining would solve
any problem (except if you are a 6-month hungry child), but
I would love if it could give us some momentum and
maybe a starting point to leave aside some old
unresolved issues, giving a chance to new ideas! Which
basically means, keep working together to keep building the
best Operating System. :-) (But doing that with even more
fun for even more people). We can too!
On a totally unrelated note: my primary MX is back for quite
some time, I should report that earlier, anyway, sorry about
the lack of posts, thanks for your attention and see you
