deven: advogato is for persons in the community to toss out ideas, vent, and discuss topics. the certification system is by no means the intent of the site. im not trying to be rude, or fan the flames or anything, but all but two of your 19 posts are concerning the certification system. now, this hardly flows with the original intent of advogato. hell, id even consider certifying you for your contributions if you didnt make such a big deal about it all. furthermore, removing your certs of other people because you wanted to be certified is... well, its something. but, again, who cares really.all the way to the year 2000
on to a more.. pleasent topic. does anyone know of a simple, small bug tracking system (as an alternative to bugzilla, that is) that has interfaces besides web? like, say, email or even irc?
im planning on releasing a prontoc snapshot (the purpose of which still escapes me) in the next week or two or, as soon as i write an address book and finish the attachment stuff, whichever comes first *grin*
ive been reading a lot of 'community participation' pages of sorts, and a common idea that comes up is 'yet another mailer' and, as strange as it may seem, i agree with that. why are there so many email clients (free, open source, and otherwise). and, furthermore, to quote jwz (or, at least, i saw it on his site first)Every program attempts to expand until it can read mail. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones which can.Anyways, to the question "why write another email client?" i answer: "because its fun" what better reason could there be?
