▲ 3 ▼ Peter Bourgon · A response about dep and vgo
Russ Cox did a tweetstorm about his perspective on the dep/vgo/modules story. It’s not a lot of fun to re-litigate histories, but there are some subtle and important problems in this narrative, and it’s important to me that I have something on the record that objects to those problems as I see them. I think it’s important because Go’s leadership spends a lot of time and energy on promoting the notion of a community culture, and I think this incident, in all of its messy and protracted complexity, stands as pretty compelling evidence that they haven’t figured out the right protocols for that, yet. It’s important that there’s an accurate history on the record, so that future endeavors can improve on the mistakes of the past.
