Mikeal Rogers
@mikeal
i'm not going to attack them or anything, but i'm not going to stop building things and solving problems and getting the community engaged in fixing them
Jeremiah Senkpiel
@Fishrock123

Mikeal Rogers

Bwahahaha, that's an amazing URL
love where it forwards to
I gotta say though, I can't believe indutny isn't on the advisory board
he seems like the most active out of anyone on the node project
Rod Vagg
@rvagg
advisory board is political level, I believe Fedor asked not to be involved
advisory board is not about getting stuff done
Mikeal Rogers
@mikeal

@rvagg

i was quoted in the press as saying "i can't talk about this yet"

@Fishrock123
(generally) press = hyped up trash

@a0viedo
Companies can only get on the board if they are both current top contributors I still can't figure it out how a company could be a top contributor
Albert Engelbrecht
@droppedoncaprica
@a0viedo I think the idea is the companies that have full time staff that are working on node core

I think Rockbot's tweet last night nailed it for me: https://twitter.com/rockbot/status/525342672601378816

i've actually spent a lot of time talking to companies that would have full time people on core if 1) it weren't owned by a company and/or 2) there were active contributors they could hire
some companies have people they would throw at it but can't justify it while it doesn't live at a neutral party
Ken Perkins
@kenperkins
You can imagine the discussion we've had at Rackspace (I have 3 PSF board members on my team, also members of the openstack tech committee, etc)
Mikeal Rogers
@mikeal
but, even more companies simply don't know how to hire people who might be able to contribute to core someday, they need a list of contributors who are active that they can go after
Alejandro Oviedo
@a0viedo
and it's totally understandable
Mikeal Rogers
@mikeal
and one of the reasons we aren't growing new contributors is the ownership/dictatorship issues
Ken Perkins
@kenperkins
I get consistently ask when is Joyent going to give Node to a foundation :)
(as if I have the magic answer since I'm in the node community)
Mikeal Rogers
@mikeal
it's somewhat telling that after small changes to the contribution policy and a week of being public the fork we had up added 2 contributors
Ken Perkins
@kenperkins
For me it's always the risk factor; what if joyent has a course change?
Mikeal Rogers
@mikeal
at this point i've talked to people at damn near every software foundation
Ken Perkins
@kenperkins
there's a very fine line between a BDFL and a MDFL
Mikeal Rogers
@mikeal
and one thing i've learned is that no company has ever has a successful project and put it in to a foundation when they have any other choice
and that goes all the way back to Mozilla
i don't think we need to look at "what ifs" anymore
what is currently happening is bad enough to do something
