This is why free software is special - he just assumes it can get into the
kernel, even tough Linus doesn't like it. Consensus is so 'normal' in FOSS
development you don't notice it all the time, but it's a great thing. It's
the reason for creativity and the 'free spirit'. I love it. I wish more
things worked this way... Politics anyone? I'm liberal by nature, and I
think freedom will always find it's way. As long as there is a community
watching it and protecting it. Wiki's, blogs, podcasts, they are
transforming the world. I hope we can protect it from you-know-who (from
evil governments to RIAA, from terrorists and other fanatics to greedy
companies).

This isn't slashdot.

The possessive for "it" is "its". The plural of "wiki" is "wikis". That is all.

This isn't slashdot.

Right about "Wiki's", but both the "It's", meaning "It is" rather than the possesive, are correct.

This isn't slashdot.

... so that just leaves the third "it's"...

which is incorrect. Freedom probably won't "find it is way".

Who is "he"? Ingo or our editor? If Ingo, he wrote the patch before Linus commented on it. If it's the editor, please note the word "eventually". I don't think anybody assumes that Ingo's patch can go to the kernel as is.

I think you are generalizing too much. Other projects are run in a different way. Consensus doesn't always work. Although if developers are motivated to stick together, they will look for a solution that doesn't alienate any of them.
