Open source history is divided into eras by the tools we use, there's a clear connection between the amount of friction in collaborating and the nature of the open source ecosystem that exists around it. Node.js is a child of the git and GitHub era of open source and is far more comfortable with inclusion, transparency and discussion than many of its open source predecessors.
