Stop energy

Been a lot of blogging back and forth about dconf over the last few days. Can’t help but feel its an example of stop energy in action. I wish we could be better at not using words like ‘crack’,’stupid’,’bloated’,’overdesigned’ and so on when commenting on what other people do and instead try to give constructive feedback or give constructive feedback under less insulting headers. Could be that dconf is a bad idea that we will never end up using in GNOME, but publicly lynch mobbing the project and its developers isn’t a good example of the type of developer outreach we claim to want to do.
