I never noticed the leak. I just love being part of a community that lets me know this much about problems plaguing my technology, but also solutions that solve the challenges.
And Georges ends on a very interesting note:
It almost feels like there’s a wall between the community and the users of what this community produces. Which is weird. We are an open community, with open development, no barriers for new contributors – and yet, there is such a distance between the community of users and the community of developers/designers/outreachers/etc.
