Ouch, too much work here. And the weekend, of course.
I have been talking with Jeff (RPM maintainer) about a few features for RPM, and now I have a full workload of things to do :-) I'm even stuck with a thing called xmlrpc. I have one word for it: blounted.
Why, a "generic" protocol (please mark well the quotes), based on HTTP and XML ?!?!?! That is what I call big overhead. And why that ? Only couse XML and other things like that (CORBA etc) are "Business Oriented" blah blah blah marketing blah blah blah customer care blah blah proactive blah blah ?!?!?! I'm seriously thinking about droping all this stuff. I simply can't agree with a thing like that, using a blounted protocol implementation, only couse it's 'nice' (and a whole lot of other marketing oriented arguments).
I know it's not Jeff's fault. Looks like he just have some Pointy Haired Bosses.
