Other-promotion Show more
Thing is. 85% of self-promotion doesn't go anywhere. It's clunky and inefficient, and kinda awkward at times
Promoting other people is surprisingly efficient, mostly by virtue of it being about someone else. Someone not being present somehow boosts their appeal. There is something about being introduced in third person that inherently boosts the recommendationary effect. It's strange and backwards and shouldn't work like that, but it does
Thus: promote your friends
One of the craziest bug fixes from a first-time #SVN contributer I've ever seen: Commits break with a checksum error if a delta computed on the server happens to be a multiple of 16kb in size: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN-4722
This was tracked down patiently by Melissa who showed up on the mailing lists 2 weeks ago when she ran into the problem: https://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2018-02/0098.shtml
She tracked it down to a variable, left initialized to zero, which should be set to the size of the fulltext: https://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2018-03/0066.shtml

This is a good rant:
