Here are my answers to the questions of the quiz:
1.What are the titles of each Pillar?

2.What are the titles of each General Principle?

3.What are the similarities between Weber’s eight principles, and the five pillars?

The most notable similarity between the two is the encouragement to form a community of contributors, let as many people test in as many situations as possible, to generate more bugs, and in turn generate more solutions. Collaborate, communicate, share ideas.

4.What are the differences?

The General Principles focuses a little more on general community skills, while the Five Pillars focuses a little more on interpersonal skills. For instance, the General Principles talks about documenting what you do, and releasing builds and code frequently. On the other hand, the Five Pillars speaks more about collaboration, sharing ideas, and other ways you can interact with people in the community.
