Rudi, the most professional thing I can think of to say about this
argument, which is continually used, is that it's complete BS.

Any developer who doesn't already use some type of status tracking
tool is such a beginner that they have probably not yet completed
primary school.  Clearly this is NOT the level of the CentOS devs.

Also, this gets into a much deeper discussion of what is the work
product of any IT person.  The thing preventing you from doing more
work is not how fast you can type, but working out problems.  To say
that keeping track of your status slows down problem solving is
completely ignorant -- in fact it's the opposite since you need to
sleep sometime and status tracking will help you get back up to speed
faster the next day.
