I'm rather stunned by this entry. I don't believe Jeff deserves this
treatment, nor do I think it's a healthy thing to encourage (a quick
browse through various other GNOME contributors shows that this
seems to be an isolated case, fortunately). It's all very well to
have personal issues with people , but this takes it a step too
far. We as a community should be celebrating each member's
achievements (particularly those who have been continuously
supportive of the project) and not harming the chances of their
employment from prospective employers. I've removed this section
from the wikipedia entry.
I'm not blaming Philip here - I know he wasn't responsible for the
page's content. I think it's an important point to be made though, and
as with the Code of Conduct it's important to be aware of how we
portray ourselves to the external community. I agree with what's been
said before, GNOME has a really great reputation of having some smart
folks involved with strong positive and constructive input. Let's keep
that going and play the issue not the people.
