Hey,

different enough that there's no ambiguity for those who are new to
RedHat. That was a smart move.
Yes. The good lord did a smart move creating the world ;-) Guys, you have topics here again... Do you think that moves the project forward?

But point is, we do need to all collectively adopt an attitude of
welcoming and mentoring/guiding.
That might be true. OTOH, even with mentoring, stuff is complicated and hard to get on speed with. You often have to work hard to find something out, improve it, become an expert on. Thats exhausting. Why would you do that? Because you personally want it or because people say "wow - how cool, thanks!". I think that is the main motivator. And I think we don't do that often enough.

I tell you from my personal experience as the author of Hermes: The number of people saying something positive about Hermes to me is a little of fraction of the number of people ranting nonsense. And - interestingly enough - the less clue people have the more they rant.

And how many people actually did something useful to Hermes for example instead of just talking? You don't want to know... How motivating is that?

That is different in other communities, and I think that has to change: More trust and a more positive attitude for stuff others do.
