The life and times of a Gentoo developer and leader

Compromise needs determination

There’s an article (registration required) in the NY Times on compromise in politics, and its decline.

Perhaps the biggest obstacle to compromise in modern politics, Mr. Remini and other historians said, is the absence of a leader with the gift for compromise and the determination to make it happen.

Although that article says the driving force against compromise in politics is religion, it’s worth thinking about parallels in open source. Why don’t we compromise?
