1. I'm not advocating for a Third LEDE Reich so please stop thinking I
2. I'm not talking of just the wiki, the answers I got from that
discussion did trigger this.
jow said "don't hold back yourself waiting for a response from "the LEDE
those who care about a wiki will likely endorse whatever good solution
is proposed and the rest either has no opinion or time to participate in
the decision making processes"
I was just pointing out that for people this isn't obvious, and that getting
any answer isn't a given.
To make some examples, I posted some weeks back asking things and making
a proposal about kirkwoods, I got no answer.
I also sent a mail to Felix I think as I saw he seemed interested in
Kirkwoods in the last meeting logs, still no answer.
There is a guy that posted a big pull request about Mikrotik devices and
after he fixed all stuff you asked him he got no answer for like a month
even after he asked if you had forgotten him. I mean how about posting
something like "we are busy, it will be merged next month"?
I open a pull request to fix something about kirkwoods, someone assigns
it to himself, but then no answers or status updates for two weeks.
Then there are other guys in this mailing lists that seem to have had
issues with this lack of people answering too, like fhfredi...@gmail.com.
