  • Hidden agenda? Hogwash.

    My impression is that chromatic has been quite clear and forthright with his intentions. He has looked at how the Perl 5 project has been managed, done some root cause analysis, and proposed some improvements to the process based on what his own experiences have found working well.

    Nothing wrong with that. I fact, we should thank chromatic for bothering to look at something that very few open source projects consider at all.

    • He provided crappy and stupid advice, and when told to shut up, politely at the time, he opened a blog to yell louder.

      No thanks for being stubborn, sorry.

      • He provided crappy and stupid advice...

        ...in your opinion. The reason his arguments have gained traction is he has managed to argue his point quite successfully, and most contrary views don't beyond name-calling. In your defense you have at least offered up some reasons for your viewpoint.

        Telling anyone to shut up is never polite, regardless of intent. And (as mentioned below) what if he's right?

        • I replied at length and for years on P5P. He made the debate public when being tired of being told that he was wrong on a little mailing list.
          Do you read P5P ?

            I respect all the work you have done over the years on p5p, and I absolutely hate to see you resign. Hell, I agree with you on some things, but...

            Do you read P5P ?

            Yes I do, just not constantly. And retorts like that worry me, b/c if the prerequisite to voicing my opinion on the matter is whether or not I follow that particular heavily-trafficked mail list on a daily basis, then I guess I fail and should never attempt to discuss this nor other potential changes to p5 again.

            Then again, I could blog about my thoughts...
