Until i see some sort of open discussion, even an archived one, as to
the goals for community growth Dirk was quoted on and the Moblin
collective thoughts on how they are working towards those specific
goals as part of Moblin 2.0.. I'm simply not going to concede that
"their own way" means "completely different."  So far I've seen
specific comments about technical implementation solutions for
building the bits. All this 'noise' about the reason to package rpms.
I've seen squat on thoughts about contributor policy and
guidance..anything that actually speaks to the directly attributed
quotes from Dirk in the article concerning his desire to grow their
contributor community.  They've made the mistake of catching my
attention, and there is a heavy price to pay for that.
