Funny you should say that. As I was reading, I kept thinking that it
sounded as if someone was trying to codify the spirit of free
software development. The thought of a hierarchal mindset trying to
codify anarchy is boggling. By trying to codify it, you prove that
you don't really grasp it.

Some will rob you with a six gun and some with a fountain pen,
But as through this world you travel, as through this world you
You won't ever see an outlaw drive a family from its home."
