one night at uds i was talking with a couple of other hackers around the pool (company, kikidonk and bkor).
two things came out of this conversation:
1 – we want john fleck back on planet. yesterday, if possible.
2 – people should be allowed to have their own usernames on gnome.org (instead of made-up ones that are different than your account name everywhere else). bkor said that, unfortunately, it was not at his discretion to violate the existing policy for individual accounts and recommended that i blog about it.
i’d like to know who created this policy in the first place and who is responsible for reviewing it. i’d like to know if the foundation board has the power to overturn it.
that is all :)
ps: you hear people talk about how funny it is but you don’t realise it until you actually see it in front of you: “this train is for cockfosters”.
