Example text

Users steer the project Contrary to popular belief — especially among people with experience mainly in commercial environments — software is not developed by a few pizza-eating geniuses who are unapproachable by mere mortals. In the free software community especially, software is developed by users of the software (who still eat pizza), and the development process encompasses far more than writing code in cryptic languages. Software development also relies on people coming up with ideas, testers, individuals who write documentation, and people playing along with others nicely.

On the other hand, other users rely on the freeness of Debian’s archive and are in favour of the strict enforcing of the DFSG. Obviously, when any project makes decisions in the interest of its users, it can only make decisions in the interest of the majority of its users. f. 10). The Social Contract promises the freedom of the archive. In order to avoid inconveniencing users of a package that has to be removed due to licencing issues, the package is moved to non-free as long as it can be legally distributed and a developer agrees to maintain it there.

While the individual developer may be perceived to be at the very bottom of Debian’s organisational structure, the developer majority can overrule any organisational body within Debian’s structure, including the project leader, by way of general resolution. General resolutions are Debian’s primary means of reaching a consensus on non-trivial decisions. A general resolution may be proposed by anyone and will be opened for vote when enough seconders back up the proposer’s call. Every developer may participate in the vote, and if a majority is reached36 , the resolution takes effect immediately and cannot be overruled (except by means of another general resolution).
