Yeah, I think that post is a bit presumptuous.
I don't often interact with the lists, but I do follow them closely.
There are problems that do arise, but the overall trend is that there are a
lot of people working extremely hard, coding issues, technology issues, and
'political' issues are constantly being refined and tuned. Bugs and other
issues that Adobe ignored for a long long time are being rectified. I'm not
saying Adobe did a bad job, but the AF team and contributors are willing to
dig in there and get their hands dirty.
As with any open source project, there's a ramping up speed. Technologies
are tried and rejected if they don't fit the bill - and finely tuned if
they do. Hierarchical structures and group dynamics are tested and worked
with to produce a finer machine.
I, for one, am pleased and excited to watch the emails pour in with new
bugs, new fixes, ideas, recommendations, taking votes, etc.
I don't think the poster of that comment is truly watching the progress and
dynamics of what is going on. Unfortunately, this is the fallacy that
burdens our species as a whole in nearly any facet of our lives. My only
hope is that the poster of that comment subscribes to the lists and really
watches what's going on while subjectively considering the situation.
