The Joy of Coding Together

One thing about working as an academic researcher who does a lot of programming that I dislike is that I frequently work alone. Contrast this with a typical open source project with moderate levels of activity, for instance nmh, a command-line mail client (MUA for you geeks). (I’ve submitted a few fixes to exmh, a related project.) Anyway, I’ve been following the discussions on nmh-workers (like this one), and I love the collaborative work that happens.
