First off, thank you all for your thoughts. This thread has yielded
far more passion than I had hoped for. I consider that a good thing.
It's okay for us to share differing opinions. Enthusiastic
disagreements are better than ambivalence. :)
Secondly, I just want to say that I like the term "janitor" because of
its connotation. A janitor is someone who puts forth effort doing
honorable work. A literal janitor is trusted with the keys to the
office and leaves the workplace in a better condition than when he or
she arrived. Another word for janitor is custodian. Please view the
word in this positive light: a trusted worker whose contributions are
valued by all.

Lastly, I'd just like to thank Anthony, Brian, and Mike for devoting
so much time and energy to FreeSWITCH. They've created a wonderful

Thanks again for your thoughts, ideas, and opinions. Keep them coming!
We may just yet reach Open Sourcetopia.
