Not sure if this fits in here, but as it's project management related, I'll go ahead. Feel free to move it to a different subforum.

The video is based on the experiences of some Google developers working on Subversion. While it's primarily meant for open source projects, I'm pretty sure that other closed source volunteer projects can greatly benefit from it as well.

Anyway, I've rewatched this video from time to time and I always find it incredibly useful and funny at the same time. Because the speakers describe problems you'll encounter in almost all team software projects that require collaboration.

So without further ado, enjoy: How to protect your software projects from poisonous people

Was an interesting watch. The tips can certainly be used for any collaborative project, really. No group is safe from having its progress impeded in some way.

I liked especially their decision not to allow people to 'stake territory' in the project by putting their name on code. The one and only volunteer project I've worked on had a couple people with huge amounts of code they disliked others even looking at. Very alienating.
