    Rusty Nütz 3 дня назад (изменено) @Donald J. Trump Its not contempt... nor... racism? Who is being racismed here? Anyhow, I don't think you understand how persistent and dense some people are with getting shitty changes into open source projects. You have to confront those people sternly or they will just walk all over you. Every project also has its own tempo and temperament. Yes if people are being literally harassed, thats no good, but stern words on their own are not harassment.

    Donald J. Trump 3 дня назад @Rusty Nütz Selective and critical at the code, son. Not racist nor contemptuous at the person. See the new CoC, which was supposed to destroy Linux as we know it..

    R4INM4N 3 недели назад @Rusty Nütz Thank you for this comment. It motivates me to contribute and learn from criticism!
  • Rusty Nütz
    Rusty Nütz 3 недели назад Its true. If your code is not good enough, you need to be offended so that you can either improve or move on. There is no sense at this level of seriousness in software engineering to coddle people. There are plenty of other projects that can tolerate some crappy code if it means having another physical body working with them and helping to lighten the work load. Linux has several thousand contributors a month. It turns away subpar contributions loudly because it can, and it needs to in order to even function. When you have thousands of people throwing mountains of code at you every month, if you aren't selective and critical, your projects will fail miserably.

  • Bob Dodds
    Bob Dodds Год назад Actually that saying demonstrates the right outlook to begin coding Tastefully, as Linus calls what is simple essence that works. Not to say leave room for everything that can go wrong to gum up the works, but to start there, albeit mentally debugging blah blah Steve McConnell code that works at not the only code werks until Lotus don't [t]werk($). One of these youtubes lately has LT defining by example, Tasteful coding.
