@matt-jd Also, before you say, "but jimmy11, where does it stop!?!" remember that you can't stop people from doing what they're gonna do.
In your open source project call it 'master' and nobody will give a shit.
@HiFiWiFiSciFi I don't get it. I was pointing out how master as an adjective is not relevant to gits terminology. Your post used 'master' exclusively as an adjective.
@matt-jd it's not without impact, so your premise is false. See OP
Also, "state approved approach"???? Wtf, this is a damn version control installer
@Demolishun how so? One meaning of master relates to slavery. The other meaning does not. We should limit the conversation to the meaning people are concerned about instead of accepting bad faith comments like yours and the other guy.
Change master to main, do it for a good reason (however minor), and get on with your life. Language evolves.
@csharpian "mastering" a skill is a different meaning of the word, and is off topic.
@BlackSparrow some readers could assume "Vodafone India" is an ISP. Your story was clear enough.
Good luck with the horrible internet though. The damn internet needs to be a public service.
Well done, thanks for sharing.
@bkwilliams To this developer, every existing implementation was idiotic and wrong because it didn't match the 10 year old blog post they found of "best practices." Technical discussion was off the table. If I touch "their code" then they would refuse to work on it further. The kind of developer who needs to rebuild everything they touch, and solves their consideration but breaks a couple others.
All would be fine if they weren't confrontational and volatile with each and every interaction.
Final shot in the foot was when they went to director of security, admitted a security violation related to personal devices, and then argued with this director about it.
I wanted to make it work with this person, but the organization decided that enough is enough.
@devTea nope, I didn't want them to be fired, but when it happened I had a huge sigh of relief. Every conversation will be easier from now on.
I have memorized 'Ctrl+a, Ctrl+k' and imagine it as machine gunning down everything on the prompt.
Awesome idea! I would contribute to what I can in order to clean it up, if you decide to open source it.
Tell him about micro-frontends!
Dev used *Distraction*!
This post is the reason I'm gonna start ranting up in here. If nothing happens I'll pull from the backlog.
