Who called it the code review room and not the critical section.

my dad's favorite joke

Q: to my colleagues in the field of computer security. I'm looking for a scholarly, peer-reviewed article to cite describing the #SolarWindsHack and in particular its supply chain compromise side. I couldn't find any, probably because it's too soon. If you know one please shout!

This list is by no means definitive, there are a great number of individuals behind @gnome keeping everything moving forwards

There is no "gnome devs" - it's a bizarre group of talented people doing far more than just "dev" and often with conflicting visions yet all trying to make GNOME the best it can be
