i know it wasn't your intention; but i had to read the whole message
several times to stop finding this line offensive.
note that nobody is specifically ignoring any demographics; it's just
that it might just not be what we want when we release code. note
that it's always 'code' what's released from enthusiasts like us. code
is what we breathe, inhale and exhale. it's the natural product of
just being, and the main means of communications.
'modules' OTOH, are work, done when you want to have something done.
personally i'm flattered when somebody takes the effort to transform
some of my code into something usable by other people; but i seldom
have the motivation to do it myself.
so there you go, my personal view of what you call 'such a culture'.
i'm honestly glad to see my code go where i didn't thought, but it's
not my goal.
