Well, yes, perhaps we are a gang of baboons. You've got a church model
of open source with you as pope.
Funny, I don't recall having excommunicated anyone or spoken ex cathedra
lately. If you want blessings, apply to RMS in his "St. Ignucius" persona;
I don't do that stuff.
No pope here, just a monkey still trying to cope with having been shoved
in front of a parade. I'm as anti-authoritarian as the next hacker. But
when that reflex prevents us from recognizing the very expertise we're
explicitly asking for, it's a problem.
