  • This is the second time I've heard of supposedly serious journals dismissing free software or perl in such an underhanded way.

    It is safe to say that all the major Free Software projects have very good version control, testing and QA.

    The Apache group is probably the best example of well managed code and organised people - they have produced standards defining code that frequently shames the big names of IT like Microsoft or IBM.

    It is obvious this fool has never even looked at open source code

    Even the small scale open source projects I have worked on have :

    • Version Control and Changelogs
    • Test Scripts, and error reporting by email or through rt.cpan.org
    • Object oriented design, that is peer reviewed.
    • Contributions and bug fixes from Academia (I have had code, patches and bug reports from Universities throughout Europe and the US), and developers at several large software companies
    And thats just a handful of projects I do in my spare time.
