See, one of the things I work towards is igniting more hackers — more
people curious about and tinkering with the way things work, the way things
get made. And for that, we need more folks saying whoa, how did that
happen? If a release named "Beefy Miracle" doesn't get the world to do a
double-take and say wait, what? — then... I don't know what will.
In general, to face any forthcoming big change, we need to stick more
and more to the well known principles of "rough consensus and working
code", rather than to fruitless discussions and inertia as defaults. We
need more people who dare to propose changes and who are able to show,
with working code, that those changes are viable. Otherwise the whole
(geek) world will evolve around us, leaving Debian behind.
