Record Low Turnout in Debian Leadership Election
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.
