Jacob Kaplan-Moss on who you let commit code to your projects:
What’d you do the day you started your job? Got a little tour. Found your desk. Some HR paperwork. Figured out the network. Set up your new company machine. Got your VPN credentials.
And got your commit access to the company’s source control.
Normal first day procedure, I know. And yet, that day-one-commit-bit is one of the starkest differences between the corporate and the open source development model.
I can think of good reasons for the difference, but I’m going to think about this one for awhile.
