    Phoronix: Joey Hess Resgins From Debian, Unhappy With How It's Changed

    Joey Hess is now distancing himself from the Debian project as he resigns from his roles after being involved with Debian since 1996. In his parting remarks, Joey says his biggest regret over the past eighteen years is not speaking out against the Debian constitution...

      It took him 18 years to See the Forrest for the Trees? Come on! The same toxic constitutions are in all Linux Distros. You accept it and participate, or you accept it and use the software [and don't directly participate] or you move on.

      I don't participate but until FreeBSD gets some of its GPGPU infrastructure more current I'll continue to use Linux for the support of professional engineering software [non-GPL].

        unfortunately his specific concerns with the constitution aren't detailed.

            Listen, you say some anomalous things friend!!! You will go to BSD from Linux??? Very unusual things, is there anyone else in the world like that?

                  Well, it's clear the constitution Debian has has been manipulated to disregard the opinion or vote of some of the members. It's brought some needless conflict and while I don't think this type of infrastructure is a good idea for a project in general, I'd argue more towards the people being the problem rather than the constitution.

                  However, since no details are provided and I don't really like Debian (only as a matter of opinion as it provides little towards my very specific goals), I have no clue what the circumstance maybe. Take with a grain of salt.

                    I imagine he might be tired of / disheartened by the static going on, but I won't put words in his mouth.

                    Here are a few posts though:
                    https://lists.debian.org/debian-user.../msg01897.html
                    https://lists.debian.org/debian-user.../msg01058.html
                    https://lists.debian.org/debian-vote.../msg00023.html
                    https://lists.debian.org/debian-vote.../msg00109.html
                    https://lists.debian.org/debian-vote.../msg00140.html

                    There really isn't much that needs to be said, other than expressing appreciation for his work. Any more than that runs the risk of just adding more noise.
