Sun's blog post yesterday and some of the comments on it raise the concern that Acquia, a single commercial company, exerts inappropriate influence on the direction of Drupal core. I've been a full-time Acquia employee for the last year, was active in Drupal 7 core development prior to that, continue to be active in core and contrib as time allows, and am very passionate about wanting Drupal to be a healthy open source software project and community. With that in mind, if you feel like Dries has made some bad decisions regarding core, and that those decisions were clouded by his position at Acquia, or if you feel that I or any other Acquia employee has done the same, please add a comment here with as much specifics as possible. Please try to be constructive in your comments: it's possible that the decisions you have in mind were less influenced by Acquia than you think, and it's possible that well-intentioned people made a mistake and want to learn from it. Please note that I'm writing this post on my own initiative solely, as a concerned community member, not as an official Acquia poll.
