Balance is a tricky thing since there is no way to measure it. It
has many dimensions and no right answer. I mean that it is definitely
not just about new features vs improvements to existing features. It is
also about direction A vs direction B, "xxx-dev" vs "yyy-dev" and many
And for me this is for sure not the
conversation about what is important and what is not. In all my comments
I have always used "from my personal point of view" statement which
definitely means that other people have different opinions. And this is
not about 2 issues I have mentioned. There are just examples. There are
other examples in different areas.
final comment I want to say that I do not like the concept of balance in
this context because it is extremely subjective in the same way the
definition of importance is. I may argue that slightly better concept is
that successful strategy should be built around exploiting and
expanding of your existing core strengths rather on working around your
current weaknesses (I apply it when I think about existing users and
features for them vs let's say new generic editor). And I like the
concept that I work on what I want to work on or on tasks which are
defined by my employer. Main reason to like the last one is because it
is very simple and it works.
I think that there is no
reason to continue this email thread anymore and I will unsubscribe from
this list in few minutes. Thank you for the comments.
