I try to take a photo of you both. Mr Introvert says "please don't".
Mr Extrovert says "please do". Are you telling me you can't suggest a
compromise that everyone would likely find acceptable?
To me, this is the entire point of the exercise. Are a volunteer group
that shares common interests. We are strong because we *want* to work
together. If a conflict comes up, surely it is better encourage the
parties to negotiate a compromise that is acceptable to all involved.
Or to put it another way, polite, reasoned negotiation is the
lubrication that makes open source work. LA conferences are a good a
place as any to learn the skills.
