Long ago I started using Feed on Feeds, and I hacked the heck out of it do make it do just what I wanted, but of course as new versions of FoF came out, I never quite managed to upgrade an re-apply my hacks.

There’s been much talk lately about forking FoF, since Steve (the original developer) isn’t quite keeping pace with user’s requests, and people are wanting to see their changes fed back into the codebase. I can’t wait to see what happens with this, since it’s a piece of software I use on a daily basis. I just hope it all turns out good. I really should get the most recent FoF running and see how much I need to hack at it to get my hacks applied, and heck, maybe even make real patches…

I’m also considering moving it from my server out on the web to my server at home, since one is often overwhelmed while the other sits underutilized much of the time… red is due for an overhaul and install of all the latest and greatest from the LAMP world anyway…

    I dread to think how many separate hacks there must be out there for the same functionality changes in FoF.

  2. Welcome to open-source… design by committee, er, um, anarchy!

    Anarchists are better organized then that

  4. I know that anarchists are well organized, but we can’t reveal that, it’s one of our secrets… I should have said “chaos” perhaps to throw them off the trail…
