I love how the discussion about #hikari using #darcs has now resulted in people defending patch theory after someone dismissed the whole thing as "just another #git" 💓 https://lobste.rs/s/vohztm/hikari_wayland_compositor#c_lmh4zo
@raichoo I laughed hard when I saw that the discussion moved away from Hikari to people explaining other people the world.
When has it become so hard to accept that there are technologies out there that not everyone uses and it's totally okay?
@_xhr_ Yeah, I can live with hikari not being the only thing they are discussing in the thread. I've made some pretty "controversial" decisions and I made them quite intentionally. I like that this is also generating some buzz for darcs and wayland in general.
@_xhr_ Of course seeing people considering to switch to BSD in this thread is also super nice.
@raichoo Would be a nice outcome. Let's hope they don't complain then that BSDs use antiquates SCMs like CVS or SVN :D
@_xhr_ Ah, but that's a classic!
@nia Yeah, darcs certainly pulls in a lot of dependencies you don't want in a base system. I'm using quite a lot of Haskell stuff already so it's not an issue for me but I can see how this might annoy people.
@nia That also makes a lot of sense. I like the idea that FreeBSD base gives you pretty much everything you need to start developing, but let's be real, no one does that and for good reason.
@raichoo I can still invite you so you can comment!
@shapr Really not interested. But thanks.
@raichoo ok, won't bother you about it again
But I might ask about your experience using darcs!
@shapr Sure thing, I think this is a far better discussion platform for my intents and purposes :)
