An SJW has a point

It's time to fork OSS. Not just one project, the entire community needs to be forked so we can let the SJWs see if they can develop software by doing nothing but policing one another's behavior. After all, we're told that this is the most important part of software development.

I see the Gamergate people getting more involved in this CoC debate and I see the dev community members welcoming & signal boosting them

I want to make it super clear how messed up this is. When that circus comes to town bad things happen.

Storm Henry ‏@hnrysmth
I also see developers, especially in the PHP community, who are just openly Gamergaters on their main accounts under their real names

Defo wanna see consequences for the guys bringing GG into the OSS community. Wanna see some Lanyrd speaker profiles abruptly stop at 2015.

Storm Henry ‏@hnrysmt
an easy thing you can personally do to help if you're a developer is unfollow/block the guys who you know are buddying up with gamergate etc

Storm Henry ‏@hnrysmt
precedent needs to be set: you can have full access to the OSS community, or you can chill with the organised harassment community. not both

Supreme Dark Lord ‏@voxday
You're absolutely right. It's time to fork the entire OSS community.

I'm required to take diversity classes to keep up my license, last one was "The Business Case For Diversity" preaching why the firm should hire minimally-qualified approved candidates rather than better-qualified White men. The whole time I kept thinking "Dude, if hiring for diversity actually improved the bottom line, you wouldn't need to lecture us, we'd be stampeding to do it." Turns out the only benefit is virtue-signaling to potential customers and the hope of insulation from lack-of-diversity critics. Not sure it's worth it in my field, much less in OSS where the measure of success is code that works.

I truly hope this happens. I've about had it with SJW infiltration in OSS. In fact, I'm at the point where splitting off pretty much everything is starting to sound like a good idea. Cut my country in half. Give the lunatics their share. Let them bring in slobs, trannies, radfems, migrants who can't poop in a toilet...

And build a big wall so they can never leave the shitholes of their own creation.

But, by all means, start with OSS. That way I can get some work down without having to put up with these fucks.

That was the bedrock of the OSS movement. They didn't like the games that corporations were playing but now SJWs have moved in and want to replace the CEO with a COC and a central committee. At the most basic level it's entirely about them having power over people. The code is an afterthought.

You have Facebook Console, Twitter Console, Instagram Console, and the ‘normal Internet’ is the glorious PC Master Race. Stop playing around on their platforms. Your cat photos deserve better." as Sean Malstrom put it. But there is also a consolization of the desktop, with the Windows store and Windows 10, where the operating system sees the user as a pathogen. It looks bleak for oss, people feel comfy in their walled gardens, i see it only go downhill from here, SJW meddling will just fasten the demise.

It's interesting, actually. People devote time and energy into projects without getting paid, and now others are trying to overtake and "improve" these communities of free labor with thoughtpolicing and political crybullying. Idiots that they are, they can't see the only reason these projects survive is goodwill and charity, voluntary toil done because they want to. Celebrate your hard workers. But they only want to tear them down in favor of diversity.

Well, we're about to have more diversity than anyone bargained for when more and more projects are forked in earnest. However, this will be a diversity that matters: diversity of choice.

@25
"Forking is the act of creating a separate code repository and project from the original project. I's done when a contributor thinks the original coding project made a catastrophically bad decision. Sometimes that's an architectural decision, sometimes it's a political one, like a license change.
Major projects that have been forked include X11-->xorg, Open Office-->Libre Office, Open Solaris -->Open Indiana

Blogger synp February 05, 2016 3:21 PM  

@Cogitans Iuvenis
With open source software, you have a bunch of source code. If you want to make a change, you don't change the "master" source code. Instead, you copy it and make your changes. Once you did that, you have a copy of the source that is different from "master". That is called a "fork".

Ordinarily what you do at that point is to ask the maintainer/administrator/whatever it's called in this particular project to merge your changes in. After that, you delete your "fork" and you're done.

Sometimes when there is a strong dispute about where the project should go, you don't merge your code back. Instead you keep developing your "branch", while others keep developing the original branch. Then we say that the project has been forked as in a fork in the road.

So what they mean is to take the current source code, and keep developing it with different rules if the original project adopts a CoC.

@11 Student in Blue suggested a Gitlab fork, Gitgud, as an alternative.

Gitgud looks viable. No CoC, says "freedom of speech", politically neutral, and has a chick almost flashing her tits on the main page. But for how long will it stay free? I don't know. I see no anti-entryist policies.

Perhaps we need to create a Silicon Valley company - White Knights inc. that would go in and do diversity training and consulting to places like the Mozilla Foundation. Hemlock is much quicker and causes less suffering.

If I ever had a planet-busting starship I would be over every leftoid city screaming "Weapons free! Burn them! Burn them all!"


It's time for a divorce from these leftoid cretins.


They do appear to have a cadre of a few who can code, a few who will still be around after the extinction burst of those twink-hairs that even other SJWs won't be able to work with. So I would expect that one cadre who makes anything to get "boosted" in every endeavor, from the media making them look like they are saving the world, to corporate sponsors. Their work won't be any better than it normally could have been, because OSS and people writing code for them is business as usual and feels ultimately do not matter, but the Cathedral will see to it that the same exact stuff, but written by SJWs, is seen as $$BETTER$$.

I'm not trying to debunk the idea. It's experience and observation that tells me they have more coordination in their lies, and the battlefield is dynamic. Forking out will "hurt" them, but their think tanks will come up with a counter, and that's when we see the media get involved in OSS. So people grinding OSS solutions for decades with hardly a word will wonder why the GLBTQABCSDIHA twink-hair coder who did one obscure module is suddenly the being treated like a celebrity. Thing is, we are dealing with people who will say "Ah... look at what these CIS scum are doing? Let's find ways to exactly counter that!"

So we should consider not just this move, but their next move. And a way to counter that. These bastards live off foundation money and have all day to think about this stuff.

They would have to modify the license. Any such license would not qualify as a free software license under either the BSD or FSF definitions and would result in an immediate fork. They would have to get all the current rights holders to agree, but they could try.

Almost certainly. If they have the rights, the can license the software pretty much however they want.

Almost impossible in a project of any history or size. It would require that every contributor sign off on the license change or their code excluded. That's why linux uses an older version of the GPL, it's not practical to change the license.
And as noted above, such a license would not qualify as free or copyleft. Many coders will not contribute, and many other resources are not available without a free/open license.

I think its time for the KDE project to abandon the K naming scheme. It's confusing and inconsistent at best and extremely offensive at worst. To me the name Konsole Kalendar is too close to the KKK's Kalender. Many other application names follow this scheme as well. Its time to be more logical and sensitive in the way we name applications.

Pretty much all OSS is funded by amenable authorities. The libertarians were tolerated for a while, but it was communists that started the Free Software movement, and the libertarians have either been kicked out, or cowed into submission and silence. Look at the leader of the R project. Forking OSS is a good idea, but do we have the numbers? We are already being marginalized and pushed out of work, kept out of jobs. Supporting our families is a real issue.

Let me give you an example. Richard Stallman, started the whole Copyleft idea. Read his blog. He's a communist.

Linus Torvalds. His parents were members of the Communist Party. One of his chief lieutenants and promoters, John "Maddog" Hall, recently came out as homosexual. I've spent 20 years in the Open Source trenches. The numbers of pagans and homosexuals is tremendous. And always has been. BSD operating system; Kirk McCusick and Eric Allman (inventor of Sendmail), nice men, but also homosexual. Sort of like Milo.

I've watched over the years, who gets funding for OSS. Most of it goes to the pozzed or the cucked.

OpenBSD is probably the last holdout in the OSS movement that opposes SJW entryism.

I love watching great whites munch on the chattering classes.

I can, psychically, hear the retort... well... retort may not be the right term for it. How did it go again, when he realized he had been targeted and his wish might well be granted? Oh, right... "Mommy, mommy, mommy, help!" *grins* Love that shark-bait thought process for certain types.

I'm all for it. Lets see some all SJW software projects, companies, nations, etc. I doubt it will work. SJWs don't build; they infiltrate and destroy.

Sorry @39, SIB

The Urban Dictionary says I am correct in my usage. You are also right too, but my interpretation last night was that word fork was being used as a shorthand for "stick a fork in, its done".

Anonymous, I am not the one breaking the blog rules, YOU are by not choosing a name. At least I use mine. Do you kiss your grandmother with that mouth? I hope you use mouthwash at least.

Someone pointed into a men v. women island experiment from Europe. Here is a vid with subtitles
Short backstory, men go to one island, women to another, after a week the women are dying of dehydration and starvation and the elements, the men have built a hut, many hunt or gather, and are doing fine. The series would be boring if it ended there so they swap 3 men and women. The 3 men are shocked and rapidly start building while the women stand around and watch.

OSS isn't communist - consider ESR. It is a meritocracy. Linux doesn't look like the Lenin steel works. And the original point is no one cares what you are but what you are capable of contributing. Gay? Milo is Gay but is with us helping save western civilization.

Fork any SJW infested project, and it will die unless it can find enough white-knights to keep it going. Someone else mentioned earlier forks - X.org, LibreOffice.

Such would die a faster death if we could take out more of the white knights - the question is if you could break their codependency.

The reason society is going to collapse in the blue states is the politicians and police are the parasites and there aren't enough of them - you see it in Sweden and Germany just with the Muslim invasion.

ESR is a Menshevik; The bulk of OSS leadership is Bolshevik. Remember how that went down. (I speak figuratively; the communists always crunched down on the useful idiot anarchist/libertarians once they had used them as allies. ESR isn't literally a Menshevik; but his faction is the equivalent thereof)

@77 Just shut off my Twitter. Thanks for letting me know. This type of manipulation is why I quit Faceberg. It was a pretty useless at this point anyway, but this is the death rattle.

I don't have the energy to fight the metrosexual betas these days anyway.
