Community Building Takes Time

Lessons learned from five years of Fedora: "The most valuable thing I've learned watching Fedora is this: Patience. It takes time and steady, incremental growth to build a solid community. -- Joe 'Zonker' Brockmeier, Community Manager for openSUSE.

I totally agree. I've been a big fan of the Linux community (communities, actually) for years now, but the more community work I do for OpenSolaris the more I look toward the Linux community for ideas and inspiration. They did this first. They are bigger. We are younger. We can learn. It's that simple. I feel the same way about other communities as well, and I regularly talk with BSD guys (where we partially came from a long time ago) and Mozilla guys and other groups as I pick and poke my way around OpenSolaris. It takes time to build anything of value.
