Record Low Turnout in Debian Leadership Election

mackstann Re:Maybe (525 comments)

What exactly does Bruce Perens do? ESR codes (well, he used to, sort of) and is a well known right-wing crackpot. Torvalds is a kernel engineer. RMS codes and goes on speaking tours. What does Perens do except sit around and armchair-quarterback the FOSS community? I can't think of a single qualification the guy has that makes him fit for the sort of "leadership" position the guy has fashioned for himself.

I wrote the Electric Fence malloc() debugger, and some pieces of Debian.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:
