Lets try to make this a little less adversarial. This doesn't have to
be a clash of communities where there can be only one. Yes, the way
this was introduced caused things to become very contentious. But at
Cauldron we also agreed to bring this proposal to the overseers list
and discuss it together. Of course we can coexist. Lets do a reset. Now
that the plans are more public there will hopefully be less opportunity
for speculation and misunderstandings. But there are still some unclear
details and people have had various (unanswered) questions. It would be
good to get answers to the questions people asked on overseers. And it
would be great if the GTI TAC members discussed how they see the
technical details of various services on the overseers list. We can
then file specific sourceware infrastructure bugs to track the various
technical needs from a community perspective. And hopefully we can
then, as one community, take up shared responsibility of how to move
things forward together.
