feedback (for devs) in General Discussion Posted March 23 · Report reply I recall watching a talk about open source and the presenter used the phrase "bus factor equals one". I had similar situation at previous workplace. We kept asking "What happens if you get hit by bus?". After there were two deaths (1 unexplained and another a heart attack) of co-workers and a near-fatal heart attack all in the company in the span of about a year, our group switched it up to "What happens if you win the lottery?". The point? We have lots of really cool tools and piles of knowledge - is this knowledge spread around enough for others to keep going should @drobbins suddenly find he won a power ball lottery and is moving to a tropical island w/o computers? I just look at the FreeBSD ports collection or Gentoo repositories. All those indications of "unmaintained"... That should scare some people.
