Proud member of an effective community

In days like this I feel very lucky to be a member of the OpenStack community. The thread that started today demonstrates the great culture of collaboration among the people that make OpenStack.

Following up on the discussion held at the Design Summit, Thierry suggested to split the Mailing-list in order to improve the communication among developers and users. The proposal requires a significant change in the current workflow for developers and adds a new burden on the infrastructure team.¬† A reason to be proud of this community is that the infrastructure team didn’t say ‘no’ like many IT shops would. They highlighted what they needed in order to do a good job satisfying the request. A volunteer jumped up to help (thank you Duncan) and off we go to do something without wasting time debating. This community is effective and gets things done.
