non-car fedora analogy
May 7, 2010
Fedora is a garden.
Right now we let almost anyone help out in the garden. If you have a spade and something to plant, you can dig in. This is not a bad thing at all. The problem is we have a finite amount of land and we have one patch in the front which is what we want everyone to see first when they come in and to think of first when they think of the fedora gardens.
Two issues fedora is grappling with:
The first issue that fedora has been grappling with is who decides what gets to be in the patch in the front and how we enforce those decisions and make them fair.
The second issue is how we make sure that folks planting in the garden (in the front or in the back) are not making the ground toxic and impossible for anyone else to grow anything.
