    Re: Should we start a programming consortium?

    developers only ever have input when they gone beyond developing into management.

    Maybe permanently approved developers than permanently employed. If the developer isn't getting paid, then the work stops. Similarly, if the developer stops working, the funding stops.

    Re: Should we start a programming consortium?

    Re: Should we start a programming consortium?

    I'd quite like to talk to users and developers. Limiting myself to the Linux foundation is just as fruitless as limiting myself here. This is just the first step.
