I'm at the point where people complaining about projects that are underfunded & consequently understaffed not moving "fast enough" is just going to start resulting in blocks. I'm not gonna waste my time arguing with you because thing's didn't happen at your pace. Seriously, these projects take an absolute tonne of work. You want stuff to move faster, start throwing money at it so people can dedicate full time towards doing things.

Here's a good example of how I like to use issue threads. The issue opens with a description that includes relevant linked code snippets, documents some design decisions and micro-research I performed, includes the commit that fixes the issue, links to the docs and shows some follow-up work before linking to the release that incorporated the changes Goal is to tell the full story of the problem and its solution so I can fully understand it when I revisit much later https://github.com/simonw/datasette/issues/2277

Liked More funding and less shaming by Jeff Triplett 
Post details
Note: I deleted >1000 words and decided to post a summary instead. Jacob Kaplan Moss slacked me his article today because he knew I’d like it, and we have both had ongoing conversations for years about open-source Funding. It’s worth reading. I mistakenly submitted the article to the orange website because I assumed someone else already had it. Oops. I support funding open-source projects. We are trillions of dollars away from providing enough Funding for open-source software before I have the patience to set through any debates about the right or wrong way to fund them.

Bookmarked The Lack of Compensation in Open Source Software is Unsustainable by Thomas Stringer 
Post details
It’s 11:43pm on a Monday night. My 6-week-old son is asleep in my office so my wife can get some uninterrupted rest for the first half of the night. He’s finally asleep now, and I probably should be also after a full day of work. But I’m not done for the day. Even though I’m a software engineer by trade, I’m also a computer programmer by hobby and passion. So I do what I’ve been doing for well over a decade now: I boot up my computer to write some code.

Liked How to create an open source program office
Post details
A central open source program office is a designated place where open source is supported, nurtured, shared, explained, and grown inside a company. With such an office in place, businesses can establish and execute on their open source strategies in clear terms, giving their leaders, developers, marketers, and other staff the tools they need to make open source a success within their operations. This guide aims to help you figure out why and how to establish a program to manage the open source use and creation inside your company, as well as to show how your developers can make their own contributions to open source projects outside your operations.

Liked Sentry: From the Beginning
Post details
I've been trying to invest more and more of my free time interacting with founders. I genuinely feel we've been through a lot with Sentry and I can provide some useful value to others. More so, I believe most people in this industry, most successful people, do others a disservice but not having honest conversations about the hardships and endurance it takes to succeed. As part of that I thought it'd be interesting, or at least therapeutic, to talk about some of the history in written form. I previously wrote about Sentry's Seed Funding, but I want to go deeper on some other topics this time around. I'm not entirely sure what future topics I'll cover, but hopefully you'll find some value in it.

People seem to really have bought into the capitalist version of open source where software is still a product that requires support and marketing and a roadmap and exists to serve a user community separate and apart from the project. But a whole lot of open source is really just a sharing economy. It’s devs doing something they found useful and deciding to share it rather than hoard it. Those devs don’t owe anyone extra labor just because they chose to share.

IMHO, an underappreciated aspect of 'filing bug reports is (hard) work for people' is that it's hard work that often has no particularly immediate payoff. Filing a bug report will mostly not get the problem fixed immediately the way you want; at best it may get you a fix in the next release, which will arrive who knows when.

Liked Getting to know the Open Source Vulnerability (OSV) format - Open Source Security Foundation by Jennifer Bly 
Post details
To keep the modern technological world of open source software safe, it is critical to efficiently and accurately communicate information about open source vulnerabilities. The OSV Schema, created through the collaboration between OpenSSF members and housed within the Vulnerability Disclosures Working Group, provides a minimal, easy-to-use first class JSON format for describing vulnerabilities in open source software.
