How to Run a Successful Free Software Project

This is a recommendation for a Libre / Free book that applies to the Whonix Libre Software project.

Especially important I find at the moment chapter 4, Social and Political Infrastructure that discusses leadership, decision finding, participation, voting rights, voting systems, polls, consensus and more.

I wanted to keep this blog post neutral and only informative. In later blog posts I’ll follow up with other useful concepts such as consensus, the systemic consensus principle, lazy consensus, do-ocracy as well as with the current state of decision finding / participation in Whonix development. After that I plan on starting a discussion on how we want to handle these things in Whonix.
