People who fork repos and make no additional commits

y tho

@twisterghost might just be modifying it for personal use on their local machine and being too lazy to push the commits back, something i've admittedly done

@VoidLurker yeah thats fair. I just keep checking the forks people make to see if they're doing anything and nothing comes up :(

@twisterghost they're making a backup or they don't know what they're doing or they meant to work on something but didn't

@tso yeah, makes sense for sure, I just always get excited that someone is going to contribute back to the project but check periodically and its just pacing HEAD and I'm bummed


I've done that. The process goes something like this:

1) Ooh that's a cool piece of software, but I want [feature]

2) I'm a software dude, I could quickly implement [feature], better fork this

3) Okay, pulled down the fork

4) Start implementing [feature]

4) Oh no, I have to go handle [interrupt]

5) Okay, back at the computer. What was I doing? Oh yeah, I was tooting stuff!
