I see this as a US lawyer creating some groovy music, and some Debian 
developers throwing a party around it - at their own back yard: Debian 

Now you come along, after a little year of hot (and at times less hot) 
partying, wanting to throw another party and inviting us all over.

Change is good, they say. So feel free to try attract us party people to 
stop the music and move our lazy asses over to your backyard.  But 
beware that the more parties, the less friction - the less network 
effect: We end up dancing alone, each of us.

Personally I need no paid staff to help me contribute: it is not a user 
support forum, but a developer gathering.

And I need no neat voting tool - for this developer gathering I much 
favor technocracy, do-ocracy and/or anarchy over democracy.

But throw that other party and we'll see if my archaic principles on 
partying are mine alone. :-)
