Re: Linux has become too big

Well yes, but Linux being big, in terms of LoC is one of the reason we need a good gatekeeper.

Every line of code is dangerous. Therefore we need to weigh the benefits against the problems. Inexperienced programmers often underestimate the problems and overestimate the benefits of new code.

It's in a way like in a surgery room, you don't want to many unqualified people in there.
