Open Source Projects: Surviving Poisonous People

leave a comment »

I read through the blog at http://weeklysqueak.wordpress.com/2007/02/20/how-open-source-projects-survive-poisonous-people-and-you-can-too/ and watched the video, it offers fantastic insights into the working of a large Open Source project.

Here’s the summary for ready reference… (mostly for me to come back to):

1. Comprehend: Preserve attention and focus.

2. Fortify: Build a healthy community.

3. Identify: Look for telltale signs.

4. Disinfect: Maintain calm and stand your ground.
