My blog post on Friday stemmed from my frustration at how it feels to be an outsider wanting to contribute to YUI— frustration that I probably wouldn’t feel so acutely if I hadn’t had the experience of contributing to YUI from the inside. I wanted to be frank, but I also wanted my criticism to be constructive, which is why I suggested solutions instead of just complaining.
It wasn’t my intent to be discouraging, and I think I probably should have waited a while and written that post from a place of less frustration. I stand by what I wrote, but I regret that it was couched in negative emotions. I owe the YUI team an apology for that.
Ryan also notes how we’re already addressing his concerns. I’m looking forward to continuing this in the weeks ahead.
