I think that you're confusing people. «The Cathedral and The Buzzword» was
written by ESR. Linus didn't start the Bazaar theory: ESR came up with
that as observation (and perhaps some imagination). I don't think that the
Linux kernel project epitomises "Bazaar"-style of development, it was
simply an early example of very distributed development. You can't take
that and judge it by rules that it doesn't try to follow in a game that it
doesn't try to play.
Real bazaars are more like shopping centres than like that kumbaya idea of
let's make a little place for everybody and everybody will be happy. It's
not quite like
Perhaps we could have a walk together to Marché Jean-Talon and contemplate
how much of it can be called a Bazaar and then ask the commerçants one by
one how much they get charged for just taking up space in the market.
