The other day, I told a fellow GNU-user about the Hurd development
situation: Some guy would pop out with a suggestion or some over-all
friendly email. ams would then reply in a manner that made the unsure
poster go defensive, effectively ending the potential progress of the
suggestion. I also said that it was a seemingly recurring event.

He then said, that is was a shame. We would both like to see the Hurd up
and running fast, and recognize the value of having (excuse the
marketing term) team-players doing it.

After all, the community ought to have an integrated central developer
core, should the Hurd get big.

tschwinge has my support in his demands, too.
