Warning, I'm about to violate my own forum rules, but screw it I'm DONE when it comes to Git.
Thing is /for_others/ not really meant as a place to copy old code from. Half that stuff's a decade old or older now... Most if not all of the contents there are directly tied to specific posts on various forums, or articles. As such there is NO reason for "realtime updating' or "commits" or any of the rest of that pointless time wasting overhead. THERE ARE NO UPDATES! Nothing would "change" as it's old examples.
I'd say over two-thirds that is stuff you shouldn't be "downloading" in the first place, and if it is I put a .zip file in there. I certainly find it easier to browse the code where it is now than the utter dumpster fire that is shithub... where 99% of the time I can't even find where/when people make updates anyways!
Browse in place, learn from it if you can/must, but it's not exactly what I'd call the most up to date of sources and NO, nothing there is EVER to be updated really. It's an archive. That's the FREAKING POINT OF AN ARCHIVE!!!. Do you magically expect the "wayback machine" on "Internet Archive" to update old pages? DAFUQ?!?
This is why I utterly fail to see what the devil you folks think that shit or shithub would provide for benefits... BEFORE I talk about the shit-show that idiocy is.
EVERY F***ING TIME Git gets involved in anything I've ever worked on, it's cocked the entire damned process sideways and blown endless time on its dipshit rubbish.
Something I had mess me up for a week with someone earlier this month as they made a "feedback" fork and I was still looking at "master" wondering where the **** the update was. I just kept asking "could you just send me a .zip of your updated copy" because I couldn't find it!
F*** git, F*** shitub. And if you have a problem with that, F*** you too! Take that steaming dung-heap, dump a can of shellac on it, shine it up real nice, turn it sideways, and stick it straight up your candied asses.
I have no use for it, AND IT IS NOT WELCOME IN ANYTHING I DO!
Especially with the number of know-nothing numbnuts out there who seem to use it just to turn a 10k project that shouldn't be more than five files in one directory into a 200k train wreck of 200 files in 10 directories!
