I'd prefer to be working on a branch of CVS if it weren't for the people that would scream whenever I moved my merged tag up. (eek eek cvsup bloat). That way i would have a dozen people helping me but with my code in P4 I have me and occasionally Peter.
P4 is ok but it's strangling me because people have to get teh source to work on it and it's just a bit too hard to do so. And when they have it they can't just use CVS to generate diffs to send back etc. Julian On Mon, 18 Feb 2002, Peter Wemm wrote: > Matthew Dillon wrote: > > : > > :So, John's last few months of work is junk then, is it? > > : > > :Cheers, > > :-Peter > > :-- > > :Peter Wemm - [EMAIL PROTECTED]; [EMAIL PROTECTED]; [EMAIL PROTECTED] > > > > I'll tell you what is junk... patches for things like getuid() sitting > > in P4 (whether instrumented or not).
