I use the number and length of OT as a measure of the success of the
latest Fedora release. The sooner the OT starts and the greater the
number of replies, usually means fewer problems to report and fix.
I confess to enjoying -- usually late at night when I don't really want
to start something new -- the community blather that takes place.
Gossip, ribbing each other, righteous indignation, exchange of OT
information and speculation can be important glues to building a
community that can be counted on when something really goes wrong.
