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

@twisterghost

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!
