You'll say: but the code is free! Yes, it is. Which is about as valuable
as... Let's see - how many distribution-specific package managers have been
ported to others?

My pet hypothetical solution of the day is that mailing lists might raise
the quality of the debates by limiting the number of messages written by
each person per day in each thread. This might, I think, induce people to
write with more thought and put more effort into making each message count.

btw, is the concept of numbers smaller than zero but not negative known/used
anywhere outside of debian/dpkg?

Tizen has drawn a lot of crap from their complete silence and secret
cathedral building behaviour up to 1.0 release. But I can say that if I was
in their shoes, having to launch a handset device .. and handset stack. I
would probably end up doing the same things as they had. In a world where
you will see your semi-ugly alpha release screenshots laughed at in news
articles about your 1.0 launch, when you have a perfectly working and very
shiny final release that nobody seems to bother to even check out, it's
hard to argue for transparent development from day zero.
