Ferry how would you adjust?
It is an interesting discussion indeed. And I have to admit, I sort of like the Linux kernel approach because it automatically enforces some quality control / self checking. If everybody who wants to commit something knows that the big benevolent dictator will indeed look at it, the code might be cleaner.

On the other hand , I believe a well written backdoor will escape even Linus...

Ferry, what solution would you propose for preventing these backdoors?
