Clashes over goals force top LinuxChix to quit

Filed under
Linux

Mary Gardiner, the Australia-based coordinator of international group LinuxChix has resigned due to a major mismatch in goals.

In a resignation statement sent out to LinuxChix lists on Wednesday, the Sydney-based Gardiner said "LinuxChix should be run by someone with a better relationship with its current (implicit) goals."

LinuxChix is an international open source group for women who are interested in Linux and anyone who wishes to support women in computing.

Gardiner's resignation comes only 2 months into her two-year term, which she intended to finish on 31 March, 2009.

Her resignation is the latest event in an ongoing dispute over IRC administration within LinuxChix.

A significant number of volunteers of LinuxChix feel hurt, disappointed, and not listened to. Many have lost trust in the leadership of LinuxChix.

Nice to see groups of women sticking to the business practice of "warm fuzzies" no matter how mired in mediocrity it makes them.

Lets all share a nice group hug shall we?
