      Nice to see such praise for diversity activists. 😂

      Don’t think it was praise or criticism; just pointing out that, like John, they are outside commentators.

      @jdegoes is a damn good coder. People are simply assuming that he doesn't/won't contribute to Drupal. Assumptions can be very wrong.

      I’m not assuming; just saying if he wants to shape the community’s governance, there is a way to start doing so, as simple as clicking.

      If I can't help with reform (and I hope I can), I can at least help ensure the crater scares other communities away from the same decisions.
