I think this quote from Producing OSS is much more general than for OSS:
"Don't think of voting as a great way to resolve debates. It isn't. It ends discussion, and thereby ends creative thinking about the problem. As long as discussion continues, there is the possibility that someone will come up with a new solution everyone likes."
FLOSS.social was launched on 1 April 2018 as a Mastodon instance for people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS). Of course, discussions aren't limited to just FLOSS -- let's share our unique interests! English is preferred for maximum conversation opportunities within the FLOSS community, but it is not required. Respect is required, however: Users on FLOSS.social agree to abide by the Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct. This service was installed and is maintained in part by Masto.Host with equipment located at OVH. You can support this instance financially through the Monthly Supporter Program, processed through CommitChange using the free software Houdini Project.
