This is rubbish.
a) branches are evil???
Only if you're a CVS or Subversion user. Branches in git are GREAT
b) LOCKING files?
No need if you have a great merge algorithm like git.
Most of the other stuff smells of Microsoft-style FUD.
Hi Jacek. Thanks for your comment. Your analysis is quite correct...
Might wanna check the update..
Umm... its a joke :P
yea, it's a joke. This line is hilarious:
"Have to do critical stuff on the trunk (e.g. performing a release)? Just shout to your colleagues to stay away from the repository. Development may continue locally. And if the things take a little longer – no problem – the bigger their commits are, the better."
It's such an elaborate and well-thought joke, that I believe most of the down-voters haven't got it :-)
I think people voting it down missed the disclaimer at the end of the post :-D
I find it easy to miss the disclaimer, I did miss it ... until someone told me.
Some classic one liners:
"That sounds like some alternative to BitTorrent. I don’t support pirating!" in response to DCS
Very well written piece of satire :)
Good one, indeed. :)
Yes and CVS > SVN.
Looks like I've been pnk'ed! :-)
Thanks for all that guys that down voted... That is the biggest confirmation, that there are people out there that *really* argue that way. Have met too many of them, too... So no allegation.
I will try if it is possible to change the headline.
I went to read this honestly expecting some coherent arguments in favour of subversion... instead I regretted reading it all the way to the end.
Don't bother clicking on this link.
Sorry for that.
If it is any consolation, I have heard/read most of the arguments from Subversion supporters. Just exaggerated a bit.
So you may use the arguments in your next discussion. They just need a bit polishing...
