I have no contact with the founding team other than via email, and I conciously didn't apply for the position, even when they opened up applications a few months back. I had no warning either - I just woke up with some new blue stars and an email from Massimo.


Now, what about 'room for interpretation' in that. Remember that when people don't know the reasoning they will probably make something up or start guessing. So do it your, the arduino team, way and don't rely on the community or make use of the community which needs communicating before deciding. If you want both there will be guesses/interpretations/'bad climate'.

I try to explain this in a general way as i don't mean to start some fight over details.

The Arduino team collaborates with a lot of people and we accept contributions from everybody.
In any open source project there is a "benevolent dictator" that has to make decisions in the end following the original spirit of that made the project successful in the first place. (you can find that concept in a lot of writings about Open Source)

Having said this we're not many people and we can't cover all areas as quickly as some of you would like.

The criteria is very simple, I'm looking at the ones who have reported the most posts while considering the amount and quality of their contributions. I've started from the "non-english" forums and now I'm working on the international forums.

There is still a lot of work to do.

I'm not questioning that, at all. I am a bit disturbed by the fact you seem to think we only want to receive.

Maybe there is a misunderstanding, the community could lighten your work load. Collaborating doesn't have to mean that you get yet another task that eats time. Though that will mean you have to share some reason about why you decided on things. Maybe the arduino team doesn't want to let go of some of that power. (you see, some of the interpreting/guessing there.)

Maybe you/we need to appoint one or several spokespersons. That way the team can have a single point to throw info to without taking much time in clarifying/discussions.
