Hear hear for that. Nothing like the knowledge that if you commit a screw-up,
it'll be noted by core devs within hours (if not minutes), which any self-
respecting dev would find at least a smidge humiliating.
When reading this little part of the thread, I got this mental image of Angie
and Dries each driving enormous vans along a precarious cliffside road, trying
to listen to a cacophony of conflicting navigational advice (ranging in
quality from "local expert guide" to "pin the tail on the donkey") mixed in
with a healthy dose of griping and "ARE WE THERE YET?!?"
Not intended to paint us as whiny or unhelpful. My only point: personally, I
got a lot better at navigating after I started driving.
