i read what you wrote but i think we're having a definition crisis of some sort ;). how do you
define 'coordination'? somewhere above i told you it doesn't take much in a close-knit circle
of people who belong to the same social group anyway. if you mean written edicts issued in
secret or something like that, then it's definitely not that. if you mean the 'see what Linus
does, do as Linus does' kind of 'coordination', then you may call it that but it doesn't make
it so. ever heard of unspoken/unwritten rules that people understand and abide by? doesn't
make them all conspirative, does it? nevertheless, it can still be bad practice and in this
case, it is.
but in the end, you know what, whatever word makes you happy. can you now make the next step
and actually do something about checking the facts out for yourself?
