Glibc Steering Committee Dissolves; Switches To Co-Operative Development Model 102

First time accepted submitter bheading writes "Following years under controversial leadership which, among other things, led to a fork (which was in turn adopted by some of the major distributions) the glibc development process has been reinvented to follow a slightly more informal, community-based model. Here's hoping glibc benefits from a welcome dose of pragmatism."

    I see that men like Drepper and Theo face a lot of hatred here. I completely understand why they face this hatred. They're prominent players in the open source meritocracy, and they're among the ones with the highest degree of merit and raw natural ability. Being the best, they just don't have time to waste with the petty bullshit that so many throw at them. They are vilified as being "mean" or "intolerant" by some, merely because they point out the foolishness of others in public. That's not a bad thing! In fact, it's to be commended when they point out your stupidity. Instead of feeling shame and then anger toward them, you merely need to accept what they're saying. Accept that you're the inferior programmer. Accept that you're the inferior being. Don't express hatred toward capable men like Drepper and Theo. Instead, try your best to bring yourself up to their level. You won't be able to, of course, but at least you'll be marginally closer to the enlightenment that they have attained.
