n.,adj. In 1997, after meditatating on the success ofLinux for three years, the Jargon File's own editor ESR wrote ananalytical paper on hacker culture and development models titled TheCathedral and the Bazaar(http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/writings/cathedral-bazaar/). The mainargument of the paper was that Brooks's Law is not the wholestory; given the right social machinery, debugging can beefficiently parallelized across large numbers of programmers. Thetitle metaphor caught on (see also cathedral), and the style ofdevelopment typical in the Linux community is now often referred toas the bazaar mode. Its characteristics include releasing codeearly and often, and actively seeking the largest possible pool ofpeer reviewers.
