Hey! I hang out here all the time ... it's just that aside from the occasional XP questions, most people don't seem to worry much about process, so there aren't many posts starting discussion. Some day I'm going to start a thread on distributed teams, but maybe this isn't the right week.

You're probably right. Unless you don't mind getting distracted from the topic with questions like "how does this relate to Software by Numbers"

Maybe that's because people can't find the right process for the job they have to do. Or maybe, no such process exists. As I said in this thread, to me, one of the main values of a process should be in its capabilities to be customized to a specific organization. Currently, we can safely admit that no such methodology exists, although XP is quite close to this goal in that it lets a lot of freedom to people using it.
