There where new developers but i have the feeling many of them where
treated rather hostile by the community until they decreased activity
or disappeared examples are lukasz, ganesh and andreas
but maybe iam misinterpreting things, iam much more a technical guy
than a sozial one

but i have the hope that with the higherh awareness about hostilities
we have now and less the CoC (its people not paper that makes a
difference) this could be prevented and maybe undone in the future.

Rewriting code that is poorly written but fully understood is good.
Rewriting code that one doesnt understand is a sign that one is less smart
then the original author, trying to rewrite it will not make it better.
