OpenRespect: It’s About Time

[ Thanks to Amy

“I promised myself I wasn’t going to get into this one,
because frankly there have been a lot of opinions on this topic,
but I want to add my own thoughts about OpenRespect.org:

“It’s about time.

“I have read the arguments about how self-serving Jono Bacon’s
recent efforts are to get some modicum of civility into the open
source community, heard the hollering from Fedora folks saying “we
didn’t get asked to be a part of this,” and read the very
well-reasoned argument from Aaron Seigo about how this particular
goal of Bacon’s may not be applicable between communities.

“Despite these reactions, which have ranged from thoughtful to
knee-jerk, I have to say that Bacon is trying to start something
that, after some honest discussion, may be words the community can
actually live by.”
