  • Relax. The simplest answer is the best: the TPF site is not as fresh as it could be.

    The next simplest answer is good too: the project is alive and thriving and can still use development.

    The knee-jerk reaction, that the world hates you, is a bit extreme.
    • The list is pretty fresh, as the entries came from suggestions from members of the TPF in the last week. Others involved in TPF have commented on their surprise at the entry being there.

      The yacsmoke project could use some ideas, which is one of the reasons I'm doing the talk in Braga, to get some suggestions. There are at least 2 other automated CPAN testing projects on CPAN, so we're not alone either.

      The knee-jerk reaction, wasn't a "the world hates me" response. It was a genuine confusion as to why anyone would suggest starting another project when there are 3 others on going. All 3 are fairly small projects and personally I don't feel they warrant a $4500 grant to work on them. If nothing else, there should perhaps be a better description as to what each list entry involves, which might have avoided any confusion.

      • Instead of reacting here, why didn't you just ask TPF and get the real answer? Instead of solving the problem, you over-reacted.

        It's just a list of ideas. It's not a judgement.

        You're estimation of the grant is out of whack too. It's for students who want an introduction to open source. Students and interns take a long time to get things done. Google wants to give the money away, Google wants people to work on open source projects, but you're now saying "Don't work on mine". What do you care how much Googl
        • And I certainly hope your remarks are not an introduction to those interested in open source. At least I wasn't being personally insulting.
          • I hope it is an introduction: just because it's open source doesn't mean you can act like you do. I have a problem with how you're personally handling this. You want to scream and stamp your feet and point fingers so students who want to participate in the Summer of Code stay away from your pet project. You've had this problem before. [perl.org]

            I'm calling a spade a spade.
            • I have personally dealt with Barbie and had no issues with him. In fact, he helped to work around a problem that I was having. Maybe it was a "knee jerk reaction" but name calling is never the right thing to do. Even if you are "right".
        • Stop being a dick and start making some friends.

          And there's nothing like personally insulting someone in a public forum that says 'welcome to open source'.

          Sigh.
