I hope there are big Finnish saunas in Edinburgh. 
I think we all need to gather for a hot sauna next DebConf.

We should change this "you can't flame people you have had sauna with"
to "you can't flame me until you've had sauna with me" :)

What I do as an exercise in order to improve the skills you mention,
empathy, respect, the feel of pleasure from working with others, is to
work with the people I sponsor. 

They provide manpower and skills I lack, they fix bugs I have no time to
look at, while I learn from them as they learn from me. I make mistakes
they forgive me for, they make mistakes I can help them fix. It is
something I encourage you all to do. Take a sponsoree and be his/her
mentor. It's good for the karma.
