Maybe if other folks do not share your analysis that the fbsd world
is loosing market/mindshare etc, they come to different conclusions
on what they want from the system.

My impression is they are busy innovating, and that is good
and I thank them for it.

As I asked on the other mail: How do you measure this ?

[Pathologising others] is not very friendly.

So, we're changing a lot and now we hear you complain about those
changes. Can you try to describe some changes that would help
both groups (those that need innovation and those that need
stability) ?

Is this really a us-vrs-them thing ? I don't see it that way.
There is innovation all across the board and to be able to co-innovation,
certain things need to be done. In the base system and in the
ports tree.
