‚ÄčThis is usually why leads or project managers used to be set in place and
projects were separated. Lead in Spanish had different roles than Lead in
German, etc. My belief is that eliminating roles is a free for all similar
to the way the wiki is structure, since everyone can read/write documents
on any NLC.

AFAIK there is a legitimate reason for leads as routers of information and
quickly know people responsible for modules or with specialized projects.
This is particularly useful in activities such as QA and bug reporting. ‚Äč
