GNU Savannah and Human Engineering Cont.

Some of the Savannah people were not entirely happy with what I wrote in the diary. You can find their comments and my comments to their comments in the following threads of the savannah-hackers mailing list:

Thread 1, Thread 2, Thread 3

An interesting side effect of this argument was my article about Human Engineering and how it transcends to actual project development. I still prefer to stay clear of the GNU Savannah service because it seems a bit too picky to me.


Trying to get a decent source control repository (I'd like something a bit more sensible than CVS), I registered lm-solve at BitKeeper. After some troubles setting up the SSH key, and bothering a support guy about it, I managed to get the project active. I also installed the BK binary, but did not get to populate the project yet.

I have a CVS repository of the project on my local computer, but I could not find any automated way to convert it to BitKeeper on the site, even though it says it is possible. The BitKeeper site could use a little re-organization.

But hopefully, I would be able to work on the project from several locations, without too much trouble.
