Okay, you raised it and now my Lavamat wants to reply on this: Secret
negotiations with other companies, promising them things without
consulting with me, working on your own schedule, throwing in large
blobs of code after silently working on them for months, not adhering to
milestones, ignoring requests to write documentation, leaving almost all
of the project work to me, spending half a person year on preparing a
campaign, kind of blackmailing me to re-write GnuPG in Rust, refusing to
prepare the agreed-upon training material.

My take away of that story is that not all hackers are able value the
liberties granted to them.  Too bad.
