so let’s start the discussion period.
This message is a short public service announcement reminding all current TUs that today is the halfway point of the discussion period on my application. I know packagers tend to be the easily distracted types that wander off following the latest shinny thing wherever it leads — it takes one to know one. I also know the author of *the* most popular AUR package (not to mention co-author of the second most popular) just threw his hat in the ring too, but I don't want you to loose your chance to hold my toes over the fire.
If my existing packages or former FOSS involvement doesn't give enough fodder for discussion, lets try some unpopular opinions:
- I think most non-library Rust projects would benefit from Autoconf
tooling. Rust is a fantastic language but Cargo is terrible in the role of distribution tooling.
- Projects that track auto-generated content (such as Autoconf
generated bits) in their VCS should be taken out behind the woodshed and...
- Non-tiling window managers are mostly just window *observers*, they
clearly aren't *managing* them effectively if they just throw them all in a pile.
- QWERTY is for mechanical typewriters or the birds, no middle ground.
I use (programmer) Dvorak for English, F for Turkish, and MessagEase on mobile. I'm considering learning ARTSEY to facilitate computer use while holding small children.
I am not a TU but the keyboard part raised my attention. I totally agree, QWERTY (and AZERTY for French users like me) are for typewriters (I didn't get why birds should support this burden). I used to use programmer Dvorak, but for french people, it is not usable as a daily solution (missing common diacritics). Since then I swapped to BÉPO. It is probably not the best for programming however, to write a thesis it can be blessed ! On mobile I use AnySoftKeyboard (FOSS). MessagEase and artsey seem interesting but are very different approaches. Good choice to avoid any use from any other people ;-p By the way, using a BÉPO layout with an AZERTY keyboard is a very good way to avoid any bad Slack joke in company !
Thanks for these new things queuing on my "things to test" list.
