re: A worrying change in Open Source perception VIEW POST


Great write up @codepo8 ! As a contributor and maintainer in OSS, this is spot on.

Nailed it!

One good thing about the bad seeds is their comments are public in repos, so seeing that in the open is a free red flag not to hire those people.

Also, when people complain about a repo, the easiest response is "PRs are welcome!" 😉

On the good side of things though, I love OSS as a way to help others and share knowledge (as you mention in your post).


Great work everyone. 😎

Keep being awesome and looking forward to your next post.
