I'm sorry it looks that way, but this is not consistent with my
experience.  I've had (not personal) misunderstandings with the psf
list (another private one); they turned out to be just that -
misunderstandings.  No one has ever tried to give orders or even tried
to have me receive a task.  How could that happen?  I'm a volunteer.

If there's that little trust at the outset, it's going to be hard to
accomplish anything anyway.

You may be right about the perception regarding the way things are set
up.  I for one am willing to take my chances.  It's not like
python-org or the PSF are a cult that takes your money and sends you
to a farm collective to work for no pay.  You can do that from home

My 2 cents.
