In recent posts, I’ve been a bit critical with Open Source. But doing Open Source is a lot of fun. The publicity of feedback is thrilling and encouraging. And then, there’s the “I want to contribute” phenomenon. Those guys that are so thrilled with your wicked product that will change the world, they want to help. They want to participate. They want to contribute. They want instructions on how to do it. And then ... the big void. You’ll never hear from them again. Even if you ask them a couple of times, through private messages, etc. Even if you show them a couple of easy tickets that they could resolve first. Blank.

Who are they? Where did they come from? Where do they go? Are the real? Or robots?

Whoever they are, I find them amusing and refreshing. But now, back to work. Someone has to actually write the Open Source code.
