I read it..again..before my last comment...did i miss something? Is there an example at the URL or a link their in which depicts a project that successfully accomplished a cultural transition around an existing codebase instead of building a new culture while building a new codebase? To my reading, both Dreamwidth and AO3 are examples of doing things right very early on. Or did a read that wrong?
But I do appreciate the RTFM attitude...it quote comforting while I am cast adrift in this brave new world of inclusiveness.

Your reading the manuals is appreciated. These discussions can be kinda exhausting. The Geek Feminism wiki and blog are also excellent resources on the topic :)

It's a lot easier to drive a car to where you want to go..if you know where you are. I think a lot of projects know where they want to go..I don't think they know where they are...and they are just starting to figure out its okay to ask for directions. Cultural inertia is a hard problem and we can make just as many wrong turns changing cultures trying to get to where we want to go..as we can deciding on a culture at the beginning.
