ESR the wit

I forgot what a wit Eric Raymond can be:

Conway’s law
is a well-known fact of life in technology organizations. Eric S. Raymond noted that “[i]f you have four groups working on a compiler, you’ll get a 4-pass compiler”.

From Conway's original:

[O]rganizations [...] are constrained to produce designs which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations.
