LXer: Open Letter to the new Debian Project Leader

Published at LXer:

"..The Open Source movement is not only moving quickly but actually gaining momentum. The only constant is not simply change, but an increasing rate of change. This is in contrast to Debian, in which the last release took 3 years and the one before that took 2 years. I believe there is no technical reason why you cannot ship whenever you’d like. The Linux kernel merges in changes whenever they are ready without anything holding up the train. Your codebase is much bigger and your changes are more frequently more intrusive, but I believe there has to be a way to work things out even if it simply requires more resources."

Not really a Debian specific rant ... more of complaint about how Linux and Open Source software work generally ... with the supposition that Debian, as the biggest and best, is responsible to change things ... Not worth the effort to read the entire thing, although I did.
