What do you think of Tolvalds words about FOSS needing more people good at mediating instead of calming tone and attitude?


I just happened to find this interview to Torvalds [1], after what
happened in his keynote speech at the Linux.conf.au Conference in
Auckland, New Zealand [2]. He doesn't really say too much that we
don't already know, but I wanted to quote the last sentence in the
article and ask what other people thought about it:

"Torvalds said that the open source movement might simply need more
"people who are good at mediating," as opposed to asking developers to
calm their own tone or attitude."
