  • I recently received some input about the Better SCM site [berlios.de]. Someone claimed Bazaar-NG has nothing to do with Arch, despite the fact that Bazaar is a fork of tla, which is Tom Lord's Arch implementation in C. Since I grouped them all under the Arch page [berlios.de] for convenience, it may have been incorrect to do that. I told him that I am quite busy and also have many other priorities for the site, and a patch will be much appreciated. He said, "I'd rather work on Arch or Bazaar-NG". Then he continued to accuse me of spreading "lies" (not inaccuracies, "lies") etc. As an icing for the cake, he quoted and criticized a lot of paragraphs from my page, but still without a patch.

    The First rule of The Rules of Open Source Programming [hackers.org.il] used to read "Don't whine unless you are going to contribute". I afterwards changed it to "Don't whine unless you are going to implement it yourself.". Someone told me it still should be "Don't whine at all.".

    I am also bothered by the PREFIX thing, but hopefully I'll find the spare cycles to contribute a patch.
