Never feel guilty about spending your work time on the discussion of a feature rather than on implementation of it.
"Talking" is not some annoying side activity, not "unnecessary" politics and not a waste of your time. It is the primary job responsibility of an engineer.
Writing your own code is a hobby, you do it for fun.
Reading code of others, and explaining your code and design decision to others is the main thing you are paid for. It makes you an engineer.

In 2013, someone requested a guided/graphical installer for #NixOS for the first time. There have been at least 6 attempts so far that all failed. Now, 9 years later, we have finally merged an implementation based on the #Calamares framework. It will be part of the stable release at the end of this month and is already available in unstable.

One of the most important feature requests we've heard from you is "WHERE THE HECK IS MY #THUNDERBIRD MOBILE APP?"

We're proud to share the release of GNOME 42! After months of hard work from all our teams, this release brings many improvements and exciting new features, like dark mode!
It's so awesome that we can have Pixelfed in Mastodon in the timeline, which feels so very much different from the UI/UX but in the end does the same.

Question to mailing lists wizards:
You probably have a .emacs file or mutt config or whatever with 15 years of experience encoded in it, which makes navigating e-mails a breeze. And I get it that none of other communication interfaces will ever match that for you.
But do you honestly see a path for a newcomer to get into the same workflow? The path where the learning curve wouldn't look like a wall, and that would take less than a month to master?
If yes, can you share it?
"I’ll pay you cold hard cash to delete your npm module"
A bit drastic, but hey, it's Drew 😄
