Pontifications

  • MUST READ!
  • Some Juicy Tidbits from Brent Cannon's Setting expectations for open source participation:
    • Everything in open source should be a series of kindnesses
    • Pay for open source with kindness
    • But when someone in open source makes demands it's like the person passing through the door criticizing how I held the door open. It's pointless and simply leads to people no longer being willing to hold open doors for others.
    • feedback must be constructive
    • negative feedback is never necessary. If you called a project stupid it helps no one. It doesn't help me because I can't act on being called stupid. And it isn't a kindness because you could have simply said that my project wasn't helpful to you for whatever reason
  • Read the whole thing ! MUST READ!
