Hey guys! I've been quiet for a while, but came across this article which I thought you all might find interesting and highly relevant!

I found this in the context of a large software project (Python) getting a new governance model. There's a good discussion here: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=18714985

Nice Lewis! Yeah I've read that one, spot on - very much the sentiment of this verse/song: https://youtu.be/WMYC4XSMxyg?t=194

Is Python getting a new model then? Why is it changing? What limitations did they reach with the current one? Thanks for this :)

In fact now I think about it I believe it was @kaliyaidentitywoman that showed me that one :p

@lewisflude - due to your interest in the organisation you'll love this bro - its bloody insane: https://g.co/kgs/7xHkjF. Interestingly Baqwan, King Crimson and Tool share the fractal of Gurdijeff if you care for the esoteric! Just ordered Beelzebubs letters to his grandson which is apparently uncomprehendable... if I go insane you know what happened :p
