"There are however, people that lead individual
projects within the community. Leadership on that level is
paramount to accomplishing anything. Anyone not agreeing with that
only need to revisit the Debian debacle. Leadership by consensus
isn't leadership...it's a recipe for inertia. I first became aware
of how problematic "group leadership" can be when Matt Garrett
resigned from the Debian Team in 2006.
"Sometimes people just need to step aside and let competent
leadership do what it does best.
"Don't let ego hinder a project.
"Lead. Competently, and lead by doing...by setting the example
and not letting ego get in the way of progress or the goal."
