Today I've stumbled upon an article "Don't waste your time on GLUEscript" written by Eugene Reimer.
This is my answer on his story: Why in the first place do I open my source code to the open source community? I hope it can be useful for other developers, users, ... around the world. Developers are free to use the code, change the code and contribute to the project. Do I have the knowledge of every single platform? No I don't and that's where I hope the open source community steps in and tries to help on the project. And some people do: "installing GLUEscript on debian squeeze 64bit". When I have a problem on the Poco library, I don't start a thread on my website and shout that Poco doesn't work: No, I try to share my problem on the forum or I try to solve the problem myself and share it with the Poco project members. That's the greatest thing about open source: If you can't solve it, maybe someone else can.
I know GLUEscript is not finished (will it ever?), but instead of ranting about the problems, Eugene could have send me a mail, entered a bug-report or mentioned the problems on the google group to make GLUEscript better. And for someone who knows every programming language, except Basic, it can't be a problem to dig in the code.
Every line of code in GLUEscript is written during spare-time. A blog-entry like this feels like a dagger in the back.
If you wish you can also discuss this topic in the Google group.
