I'm really confused -- you had a handful of very positive responses to your offer to help with Python on Windows.
Then a couple off the cuff remarks (at least one of which was serious) about what is often known as "the bus factor": But I think you may want to take into account the history here. This has been talked about A LOT in the Python community for years -- so we may be a bit blase about it. Note that Wikipedia's page on the bus factor: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bus_factor """An early instance of this sort of query was when Michael McLay publicly asked, in 1994, what would happen to the Python language <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Python_(programming_language)> if Guido van Rossum <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guido_van_Rossum> were hit by a bus.  <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bus_factor#cite_note-8>""" So this has been very, very well hashed out in the Python community. And a quick look at the existence of this list, the messages on it, and the source repo will tell you that Python is in no way a personal project of one person. (not to mentions the PSF) I think the lessons here are: - don't be too sensitive and, important for every open source community: - your comments and questions will be taken far more seriously if you have done your homework. -CHB On Thu, Apr 21, 2016 at 4:54 AM, Burkhard Meier <burkhardame...@gmail.com> wrote: > Please do allow me to share my humble experiences of being a software > professional on a Windows platform. > > Almost 20 years. > > You know what; when I tried out 'sugar Linux' or Peppermint,,,the "admin' > dude kicked me out 5 times in one sole eve, > > Maybe this is just *me*.. > > You know what: I did have my time with this *open source community*... > > I was just asking a sincere question. > > C'mon > > This was rather very ridiculous. > > > > _______________________________________________ > Python-Dev mailing list > Python-Dev@python.org > https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-dev > Unsubscribe: > https://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-dev/chris.barker%40noaa.gov > > -- Christopher Barker, Ph.D. Oceanographer Emergency Response Division NOAA/NOS/OR&R (206) 526-6959 voice 7600 Sand Point Way NE (206) 526-6329 fax Seattle, WA 98115 (206) 526-6317 main reception chris.bar...@noaa.gov
