in thread am I paying vroom to continue his dictatorship?

This reminds me of something I've been wondering for a while.

Why pmdev? AFAICS, the powers of pmdev are:

  1. The ability to read the code of PM
  2. The ability to post to a section of the site for suggestions for changes to the monastery that vroom reads and sometimes picks up from.

Why not open the ability to "use the source, Luke" to the masses? I've brought this up once before, in Let the doors open wide!, but (I think) put it very poorly, and didn't suggest this in particular.

Don't like the powers that vroom keeps to himself? Write a patch giving users more power, post it on Perl Monks Discussion, and see what people think. Perhaps somebody who is on pmdev will pick it up.

Wonder just when Node Reaper appears on the chatterbox? Use the source, Luke.

The reasoning behind pmdev seemed to originally be to keep vroom from getting flooded by patches. (See pmdev user group, the original announcement of pmdev.) But I don't see how the first point helps this.

Any takers? Will I have to replace the "Largest XP sink" link on my homenode? <G>.
