with Bryce Harrington, author of the Inkscape vector drawing program.
"When we formed Inkscape it was important to us to communicate where the
project intends to go, and what steps are needed to get there. There were
several reasons for this.
First, having an established plan makes it easy to figure out where to "fit"
your work in. When working on projects where the overall vision is not
communicated, you find your patches getting rejected for unpredictable
reasons. By specifying a clear vision, it helps new developers in figuring
out how to make their contributions tie into the project's goals.
