Suggestions for Ohloh 2.0 : "+" characters do not appear in RSS feeds

Hi braden, This might be an easy fix -- I suspect that we're getting confused somewhere in the whole XML unescape/HTML escape sequence. Do you happen to have a specific RSS feed in mind so I can ... [More] look at exactly how this is encoded in the incoming feed? Thanks, Robin [Less]

Ohloh API Discussion : Creating projects through the API

Hi Kristof, This is not currently possible, although this is the certainly direction we are headed with the API. I'd love it if all aspects of Ohloh's project data could be kept up-to-date through ... [More] scripting. We've recently been adding some incremental capabilities to the API to allow login and POSTing of some kinds of data, but we haven't gotten to the point yet where new projects can be added. It might be a while before we get there, but if you have any thoughts on how you'd like to see this done I'd be interested. Thanks, Robin [Less]

Ohloh General Discussion : Support for Monotone

Felipe, please don't take this personally... (gl to me on that...), but I really don't think you fully comprehend how pidgin developers use monotone. As such, I've gone through the trouble of ... [More] creating a massive flow chart explaining how I use monotone. And I use monotone for everything I work on now (that I control). Anyways, please READ this entry from my blog [Less]

Ohloh General Discussion : Support for Monotone

Jens: I wouldn't say bzr, hg or even darcs are "not the best choice" because I don't know enough about them. I know a bit of bzr and if some people might prefer bzr over git, I think it's ok, a matter ... [More] of personal taste. But I do know enough of mtn, at least in the way Pidgin devs use it, and I have a strong opinion that it's not the right choice; it's my opinion, and I was simply saying that I have the right to state it. On the other hand you might be using it differently and it might make sense for you, I'm not arguing it's not the best choice for you. I already explained that my purpose was to find out if more projects were using mtn. Because as I already said, I see mtn as disappearing, and I'm interested in finding out evidence of the contrary. It was grim the one brought out that stuff on the pidgin ml that wasn't appropriate for this thread. I saw that as an ad-hominem attack and I just felt compelled to defend my opinion. [Less]

Ohloh General Discussion : Support for Monotone

Yes, Felipe, of course you are free to. Although, your last sentence suggests that in addition to the right you want a reason, and I can't think of what makes you reiterate your opinion over and over now that you've left the project ;-)

Ohloh General Discussion : Support for Monotone

Felipe: to an innocent bystander like me (not a pidgin developer nor even user), you certainly seem to try and force your opinion on others. Calling mtn "not the best choice" is an indication of that. ... [More] Now I personally like using mtn (after having evaluated cvs, svn, svk, git, bazaar, mercurial, several arch-derivates and an obscure one I forgot the name of), so I'm biased in that respect... but I wouldn't go and call git "not the best choice" - it wouldn't be for me, but it might very well be for other people. Just let it rest. The pidgin developers posting here seem content. [Less]

Ohloh General Discussion : Support for Monotone

I'm not forcing my opinion, I just explained my arguments. Pidgin core developers are free to keep using mtn, and I'm free to argue that's not the best choice. One of the reasons I didn't try to do a ... [More] git-mtn two-way bridge is because I was denied access. So I did a mtn->git converter and I sent my changes as patches. Now that I've left the project I see no reason for a git-mtn bridge, just for this project. [Less]

Ohloh General Discussion : Support for Monotone

I personally must admit that the "wrong" choice of SCM on developers part sometimes prevents me from contributing, but that's about freedom - core developers have one of choice here. You seem to have ... [More] problems with people holding different opinion... And if you really want to solve the problem without introducing new ones, then instead of forcing your opinion upon others do develop git-mtn two-way bridge. [Less]
