The default was Open Source, I, on a whim, changed it to The MIT License.

Let's let the community decide, how should we name our chatroom?

The Bikeshed

This is now the name of the chatroom - I changed it when it became apparent the voting went in this suggestion's favour.

Originally proposed by Carpetsmoker (user38) whose account has since been deleted, a 'bikeshed' refers to Parkinson's Law of Triviality. It states that in organising projects, organisers will spend time deciding on insignificant matters such as the colour or material of a bikeshed instead of solving more important matters such as an overall architectural design document.

  • Btw. Why his account has been deleted? He deleted his own account? – kenorb Aug 20 '15 at 14:41
  • @kenorb - He contacted the SE team while we were still early private beta and asked for deletion. I can't tell you much more, because I wasn't a mod and didn't have anything to do with it. – ArtOfCode Aug 20 '15 at 14:51

The bikeshed

In the open source community, a "bikeshed" is a meaningless discussion about something of very little or no importance... It was popularized by phk on a FreeBSD mailing list post (which you can read here).

    @Zizouz212 No need to feel self-conscious about it; you are working on a solution to that problem at this very moment. – Air Jun 23 '15 at 23:44
