One way to measure Plasma progress
December 21, 2007
I’ve uncovered a new metric of project activity: how many people leave the mailing list. I’m subscribed to the [Panel-devel] list, and as a casual observer, it’s getting tougher and tougher to keep up. I am now at the tipping point where the flood of emails is overwhelming. Enough that setting a mail rule to dump them into a folder for later reading isn’t even an option. It’s like I’m under a spam attack from these busy little bees. Do I unsubscribe?
And every day it’s someone different. This morning it’s Jason Stubbs making my gmail account weak in the knees. Yesterday at some point it was Chani. So congratulations Plasma team members, you’ve given birth to a new productivity metric. I’ll gladly become a mailing list casualty as some testament to your progress. One of many smoldering wrecks that got in your way: Behold the juggernaut that is Plasma Bug Squashing Squad.
