I agree entirely, however I also think that the actions of a few can be magnified in the public's eye and reflect upon a the whole group. I think that many (most?) people would agree that in both this discussion and the one surrounding the Sunrise project lines have been crossed. The Etiquette Policy [1] specifies that "... as a developer, what you say and do reflects upon Gentoo and the project as a whole. We just require you to be equally respectful to developers and users alike, and to value the opinion of everybody - even if you think it's totally wrong." [1] What control mechanisms are there within the Gentoo community to keep a few bad apples from spoiling the whole barrel, as it were? I do not wish to name any names, but it seems to me from having skimmed this list for the past few years that there are a couple people who are continually embroiled in flame wars and, in my opinion, are bringing discredit to Gentoo in general and the developers in particular. -- gentoo-dev@g.o mailing list
