(Your Monday Morning Pointless Rant, skip if you're feeling mellow)
At some point last week, while tooling around, I produced a shell script
of a dozen lines to approximately graph dependencies in RedHat. Which I
posted to ilug: http://www.linux.ie/pipermail/ilug/2002-July/048423.html
I've since tweaked it to actually do the job properly (as the set of RPM
flags I chose is a little incorrect) so it's now an 80-line shell script
which I'm sure anyone else with an inquisitive nature and a little free
time could produce.
However, I do /not/ for one second think it's worthy of a slashdot
or a FreshMeat project:
And this, I think, in nutshell, is what's wrong with freshmeat (some
might say it's what's wrong with slashdot, but I'm not going there) -
the tendency, despite their posted guidelines for accepting projects, to
flood their database with worthless crap that should be left on
someone's personal website.
I'm sure this email is a product of insufficient caffeine.
