Mr. Weir:

If you're going to talk about how "corporate" one project's marketing and operation is compared to another, shouldn't you also mention who your employer is, particularly as they have had more than a little bit of an impact on the situation?

I know that officially your comments aren't representative of their stance, etc. etc... but I also can't help but note that your comments certainly seem consistent with which "side" of the fork they favor(ed)...

I think you are the first one yet to suggest my comments are consistent with anything. I don't know if I should be insulted or not.

My Lwn.net profile has the disclaimer, "Opinions expressed are my own, and not those of my employer or any organization with which I am associated."

If someone happens not to know who I am, and cares to learn more, they are welcome to follow me on Twitter (@rcweir) or Google+ (https://plus.google.com/110021943609888508798/posts).

You can find even more Rob on my blog (http://www.robweir.com/blog/) including a whole page on my various affiliations, none of which are responsible for my comments: http://www.robweir.com/blog/who-is-rob-weir

I also have some nice flower macro photographs on Flickr:

Any other questions? Maybe even (sacrebleu!) questions related to the topic of this article, which is the logo evaluation/selection process for Apache OpenOffice 4.0? Bueller...? Bueller...? Bueller...?

LWN user profiles are (AFAICT) annoyingly not visible to anyone, bar the user themselves and (I presume) staff (even then, perhaps they need to dig into the system).

Oh, my "Personal Info" page says: "Your name and info will eventually be available to other users;" - as it has done for many years. Wish eventually would come!
