Web sites, social media, mailing lists, chat channels... in a distributed world, these lines of communication are critical to an FLOSS project's success. But some projects can have all of these tools, and more, and still not be successful. What is the culprit? In his discussion, Brian Proffitt will examine the the various community practices that might seem to make the development process better, but in reality can be damaging to a community's overall health. Lack of diversity, rigid maintainerships, and, yes, even corporate participation can all lead to weak and even toxic open source projects. Not only will the problems be highlighted, but potential solutions will be addressed as well.
