I have been a part of the core development process for Drupal 8 on-and-off for the past 3 years. I saw Dries give his key note about "gates" and "initiatives" in 2011 at Chicago as well as seen the code freeze come and go in late 2012. I would like to give some of my opinions and reactions to Drupal 8 core development as well as what I would like to see in the process going forward.
