That depends on whether you just ramble on and write stuff or whether you communicate clearly, concisely, and accurately. Writing things for the appropriate audience in a way that tells them only what they want to know and doesn't waste their time with extra info is nontrivial, in the same way as writing a clean ebuild is. Anyone can write an ebuild, but I sure wouldn't add most people's first tries to the main tree. -- Thanks, Donnie Donnie Berkholz Developer, Gentoo Linux Blog:
