I have recently begun to think this is was only
a clever ploy to occupy
the project members with something largely inconsequential. Those of
us who occupied ourselves with debating/proposing/refining the strategy
neglected to consider the one key thing - to implement a strategy one
needs ownership and leadership, something we do not have.
Well we´ve got leadership. The board
It´s not very strict about "leading", but why the f*ck it should? Why it
should lead a bunch of people who do the entire work in their free time?
There´s no sense at all.
I also doubt that there´s such a hierarchy since most of the project
managers are also developers (or at least working on an other project
branch), so you (or Greg) would might list it that way:
* project management and developers
* other contributors
And that´s only true when it comes to technical questions. I mean, if I
(for example) would step up and ask for a new strategy, every member
would be allowed to kick in the discussion
On the other hand, not everyone has the required knowledge to face a
decision about a kernel or KDE question, so everything might be alright.
