Tightened up the opening paragraph of "Linux vs SQLite" section of fossil-v-git. file: [081b058a] check-in: [0297ae7f] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 26097
16:25
Moved numbered digressions in fossil-v-git down to the end of the document as a new "Asides and Digressions" section. These are things we don't want cluttering the main argument, not merely big parentheticals. file: [40555486] check-in: [84526274] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 26207
16:14
Expanded the "Sync over push" section of fossil-v-git beyond the technology to cover the "why" behind the decision. Moved the Jim McCarthy quote up to be with it. file: [327185e5] check-in: [69e64183] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 26080
16:01
Rewrote "No rebasing" section in fossil-v-git for clarity file: [840c0c6e] check-in: [970e9173] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 25499
15:59
Rewrote the "Trust over hierarchy" point in fossil-v-git for clarity. file: [6901746c] check-in: [d178c782] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 25507
15:53
Removed a repeated word in fossil-v-git file: [6000e7c6] check-in: [b798e89a] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 25289
15:52
Recast the "Anonymous contribution discouraged" point in fossil-v-git as "No easy drive-by contributions". file: [b460b27b] check-in: [73381119] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 25298
15:39
Moved the comment about patch files in fossil-v-git down to a footnote and expanded on the point. It isn't a Git vs Fossil difference, but we need to explain why "just use a patch file" isn't a good answer to the common "allow easy drive-by contributions" wish. file: [38cb337b] check-in: [4dcbd09f] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 24981
2019-07-17
14:52
Added info about fossil undo, fossil amend, and shunning to the fossil-v-git doc, with comparison to the Git way of changing history. file: [3bf667e5] check-in: [e878d54d] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 24599
2019-07-16
15:44
Reduced redundancy in the new feature set size vs ease of use discussion in fossil-v-git. file: [5842095a] check-in: [a52e6845] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 23325
15:05
Rewrote the "Accepting Contributions" section of the fossil-v-git doc to focus on the size of each tool in terms of SLOC and features, rather than on licensing details. file: [3bb6e592] check-in: [5fe84e70] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 23317
2019-07-14
12:28
Fixed some grammar errors in fossil-v-git's new "Accepting Contributions" material. file: [01ee970f] check-in: [34d758bf] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 24185
12:25
Small tweak to prev file: [8e375d2b] check-in: [d1c61803] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 24186
12:24
Turned a redundancy in the "Scale" section of fossil-v-git into a clearer point. Also added a bit on Fossil's later birthday and our take on its consequences. file: [59fbe1de] check-in: [30a74d7e] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 24194
12:12
Renamed named anchor for "Accepting Contributions" in fossil-v-git from "license" to "contrib". file: [d7e9d407] check-in: [074b896e] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 23998
12:11
Re-cast the "BSD vs GPL" section as "Accepting Contributions." In the end, that's what the difference in license amounts to. This makes the section longer, but the change includes a link to skip past the actual licensing discussion for those who don't want to read our attempt at an unbiased discussion of GPL vs BSD, since even if we've succeded, we won't always agree with the user's biases! file: [8acf2244] check-in: [75e93e35] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 23998
11:37
Another bit of prose polishing in fossil-v-git file: [acf216c8] check-in: [fcdefd97] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 23156
11:28
Prose polishing in the "License" section of fossil-v-git file: [6d1982d2] check-in: [eebd7135] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 23207
11:02
Moved the "BSD vs GPL" section up in the fossil-v-git doc and made it a sub-section of a new "Linux vs SQLite" section which has two other sub-sections: "Development Organization," which contains an expanded version of what used to be called "Cathedral vs. Bazaar" and "Scale," which contains what is left of the prior version's "Linux vs. SQLite" section. These are sub-sections of a common parent because they were mutually repetitive, and they're all aspects of the "Linux vs. SQLite" comparison, not separate things at all. file: [5048f314] check-in: [bab2656d] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 23158
2019-07-12
16:43
Typo fix file: [ec19f41e] check-in: [bd0b86e9] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 19189
16:40
Added "and use" to fossil-v-git: the license has effects that extend beyond design and implementation. file: [59c4c5ed] check-in: [2cc9036e] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 19190
16:39
Prose tightening tweak file: [10f6f4b6] check-in: [d2a77c30] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 19185
16:38
Reduced repeition of the "deisgn and implementation" bits of "Fossil vs Git" in the new "GPL vs BSD" material. file: [94ca0d20] check-in: [4f293ddf] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 19192
16:33
Rewrote the opening paragraph to "GPL vs BSD" in "Fossil vs Git" doc to make it clear that we're not trying to persuade you to make our same choice. Also removed two paragraphs making a judgement about the nature of each license for the same reason. file: [46d1b405] check-in: [d48fdb41] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 19373
15:46
Moved a sentence from the final paragraph up to the first in the "GPL vs BSD" section of the "Fossil vs. Git" doc. It was something of a non-sequitur where it was, and in its new position, it serves to bookend the discussion: we lay out our proposition at the top and come to a conclusion that we believe supports that proposition by the end. file: [3bf2c4ec] check-in: [cb1b007c] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 19850
15:41
Removed a final sentence in a paragraph that basically just restated the paragraph in the new Fossil vs Git doc. file: [6731eadc] check-in: [f5a39a7e] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 19726
15:29
Distilled the points about "GPL + CLA = commrecial interests" to only the bits essential to the "Fossil vs Git" argument. file: [c435e023] check-in: [ba1fa73b] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 19856
14:53
Applied rewording suggested in https://fossil-scm.org/forum/forumpost/1af94ddea9 file: [bac0a069] check-in: [840f2b39] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 20229
14:51
Toned down the "corporate overlord" stuff in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. file: [ae9d9bf2] check-in: [13392797] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 20218
14:43
Changed "pneumatic ratchet wrench" to "impact wrench" and added a Wikipedia link to make an analogy clearer in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. file: [e0abc9c9] check-in: [6e338346] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 20261
14:15
Clarified the consequences of a CLA on Fossil and on FOSS projects in general in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. file: [38ad1465] check-in: [fffa6769] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 20225
13:58
Clarity tweak to the "why CLA + BSD" justification in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. file: [75920791] check-in: [633830fe] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 19414
13:57
Better text justifying the use of a CLA in conjunction with the GPL in the "Fossil vs Git" article. file: [d50d5156] check-in: [838c9efe] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 19420
13:25
Merged in Linux vs SQLite stuff from trunk file: [425bb520] check-in: [f5321731] user: wyoung branch: bsd-vs-gpl, size: 19162
13:24
Clarified the scale of the Linux vs SQLite projects in the same-named section of the Git vs Fossil doc, tightened up the discussion a bit, and added hard SLOC stats to ground it all. Most controversially, added the rattle wrench analogy. file: [a6d28ebb] check-in: [69e7827d] user: wyoung branch: trunk, size: 18800
12:37
