Open workgroup and permanent workshop focused on skill sharing, and cooperative software


Some free-software dev-groups tend to be become quite closed to outside contributors over
time. Examples of this can be the Linux dev-group led by Benevolent Dictator Linus
Torvalds, or the Debian developers group which even Richard M. Stallman had difficulty
joining. Nobody should be rejected simply because of inexperience, everybody can find
their place learning, teaching or developing. It is argued that the centralist social
model used in some dev-groups actually impairs the development of the software itself, for
example leading to unnecessary and wasteful forking.

javascript support. See also Template:javascript.
