I'm interested in this.
Individuals differ greatly in their working methods.
So what is considered: "in a timely manner"? (Seriously.)
I have dropped out of several co-operative projects in the past simply
because I'm a relatively "slow" worker -- i.e. I don't tend to give three
or four fast responses to collective development _in the same day_.
I find that sort of speed of progression highly de-motivating.
Am I alone in this? (I might take up to a week to respond to any
particular event -- this is normal for _me_.)
I'm curious as to what the expectations of other debian-developers are --
for example, does not being online 24/7 -- or even once a day --
effectively create a barrier to participation in collective development
projects in debian? (Theory would say: No. But what does _practical_
So I guess my question really is: what is "timely"; and what is
Where is it defined? By whom? Does it make sense?
