Python Tracker FUD

7 PM October 5, 2006

It’s great to see that the PSF Infrastructure committee have (almost) chosen an issue tracker. What’s disappointing, though, is the reaction over on comp.lang.python.

Giovanni and friends should remember that this is the end of the process for choosing a tracker, not the start. People that care deeply about Python development, as they appear to do, should have been reading python-dev in April June, July, or August. Many people contributed to these discussions. Why didn’t you?

The thing that really gets my goat, though, is this kind of polemic, which unfairly casts FUD on the motives, intelligence and judgement of the individuals that sit on the Infrastructure committee, the PSF generally, and the JIRA development team in particular.

Maybe I’m just annoyed because I’m seeing people I respect – including friends who work at Atlassian – being beat up for no good reason. Whatever. It’s offensive. Please stop.

I agree 100%. Who didn't know about this yet?

I think it follows the maxim that the less important the issue, the more debate will follow.

We use JIRA at work, and I can say that it's a great piece of software.
