Everyone Gets a Vote

I’m continually amazed by how awesome and open the Habari process is. Today I read another email from Skippy that blew my mind. For those of you who don’t have time to read the whole thing, here’s an executive summary.

  • Everyone in Habari is equal, just some are more equal than others.
  • If you’re not more equal, your vote isn’t actually binding.
  • Apparently submitting 5 patches isn’t enough to be part of the “team”, you have to suck up to the team too.
  • In fact, “there is no well-defined route for gaining commit access.” (Rich Bowen) That sounds familiar!!!
  • Every committer has veto power! This is far better than in WordPress where just the Matt-devil vetoes things. (But don’t worry, they promise to only use the veto power when it’s really important.)

I’m so happy that Habari is going to go the route of Apache, which has produced such innovative products such as… googling… Apache Web Server! which is a 1.000 better than Lighttpd or Mongrel, rather than the benevolent dictator model which has produced crappy software like the Linux Kernel, Firefox, Ubuntu, Ruby on Rails, Python, OpenSSH, OpenBSD, Perl.

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do think that you ought to write more about this subject, it may not be
    a taboo matter but generally people don’t talk about such topics. To the next! All the best!!
