Its human nature. If people discuss things and someone's proposal gets
dissed/not added it gets listed as "politics and bureaucracy", if it
gets accepted "its meritocracy at its best." You see this a lot of
times on linux-kernel list (or in the sub-email lists). You also see a
heck of a lot of politics about where a patch needs to be fixed up to
be included. It just doesn't look like Fedora politics because its not
written down and does not have to be relied on ever again. [If Linus
wants one week of patches to be in the form of haiku and the next in
the form of sonnets.. well thats what people will produce.]
