in reply to Throw your money at tye!
Hi. I'm sure tye has done some excellent work and I swear I don't mean this as a troll but the Perlmonks additions to the everything engine are not publically available, correct? The only reason I can think of for this is that Perlmonks is relying on the obscurity as part of their security.
So this begs a few questions:
- Why would I contribute money to encourage a website to trust in obscurity? and
- Why would I contribute money for proprietary changes that would only be given to this website, not made freely available. Sub-question: why wouldn't I just contribute to the everything engine?
Once again, I don't mean it as a troll. I just couldn't possibly find the justification to contribute based on those points, especially when there are many actual open-source projects that could use the help, and thousands could benefit from the code written, rather than just one website.
Just my thoughts on the subject.
