  • The problem as I see it (which is subjective), is that those patches exist. We do not expect Tony to write them for use from scratch. But it looks to me, that he just plainly refused to even take a look at those patches that were submitted.

    Of course that'll irk people up, especially those who wrote and submitted the patches, proud of their work, and being treated like some talentless freshman junior programmer.
    • Actually applying patches to a large project like CDBI is still nontrivial, especially if they are based on older code than under development.

      Also I haven't seen Tony dismiss any out of hand, he just has higher expectations than most when it comes to patches and fixes - not just good code, but tests and a good reason to change stuff.

      Patches have got in, and he has been working on making the infrastructure of the code easier and more consistent to extend.

      Unfortunately a large number of patches that most people would consider well worth applying remain outstanding, most of them are not for serious bugs or lack proof of a serious problem but are more niggling for particular users.
