seam-dev mailing list
Sounds like a wonderful idea. Having come from a company that
specialized in recognition / appreciation I can attest to the amazing
results these seemingly small acts of appreciation produce. I don't
know if the things that Sun sent out were personalized or just a form
mailing with info pulled from the issue tracker, but if something big
is reported, fixed, contributed, etc a personal email / letter,
whatever really goes a long way.
I know I'm not part of JBoss, but I think Dan's idea is suburb and
would love to see something a like that implemented.
Real Programmers think better when playing Adventure or Rogue.
