Reflections - Tom/Ben/Cesar

What is Open Source Development

  • Social is the most important and least seen and talked about aspect
  • Most of the problems stem from social ones, not technical ones
    • These are the least talked about
  • it's fun
  • I get to choose what I work on (more or less)
  • our code works, is useful, and is acceptable by others.
  • teamwork is hard. :(

Wish we'd known Open Source/Mozilla

  • wish I'd known how to read tinderbox.
  • wish I'd known Martin is such an ass.
  • wish I'd known Mozilla couldn't use my project (distcc) as it is.
  • wish there had been more than transperancy (more wiki updates, more blogging... david don't dock marks for our honesty!).
