Dru Lavigne Chimes in on "Why Bother?"
FreeBSD author and advocate Dru Lavigne has responded to PHK's "Why Bother?" article. While citing my previous Blog entry on the subject, she made me aware of a freebsd-chat thread discussing project goals. Two users (Chris Pressey and Paul Robinson) asked questions about goals that are similar to my earlier Blog entry. Chris ended up being attacked once he mentioned the "number of backouts and backout requests" to cvs-src as a metric for "the amount of floundering a project is undergoing." This is a shame, because the original project goal question remains unanswered.
