Pradeep: given the enthusiasm with which we encourage Wikimedians to
proclaim and proselytise this facet of public service (ie, in fora other
than this or related ones) it is odd to find you saying that 'these
professionals' (as against, presumably, amateur FOSSers) do not talk about
their work unnecessarily. I did not think that Sudhanwa was doing this, my
own takeaway is that Kartik not only remits public service at Wikimedia,
but also as a FOSSer.
