about processes and engines


I’m just one in the crowd of people moving to Git. More specifically I have moved all my Rufus gems to github.

They are all under

Other pieces of software should follow.

What I especially like about Git are forks. It’s not a crime to fork. That suits well the BSD / MIT licences I favour for my work. Instead of saying “no”, I can say “please fork”. For the rest, time will tell.

I’m planning a release of the rufus-verbs gem very soon.

  1. Aha, OpenWFEru has moved as well some days ago! And learning something new every day:
    “Ruote” is the nickname of the engine/system, as “OpenWFEru” is quite hard to spell.

    How would one pronounce “ruote”?

  2. Hello,

    pasting from my Mac’s dictionary :

    ruote |roōˈōtē|
    pasta that resembles small wheels with five spokes radiating from a hub.
    ORIGIN Italian, literally ‘wheels’ .

    something like “roo-o-te”.

  3. Aha, it’s actually an existing word! And the reference to food makes “please fork” even better ;-)

  4. Hi : Thought you might be interested in a Crowdsourcing event at Stanford on May 20th, 2008 sponsored by VLAB. Jeff Howe from Wired who coined the term crowdsourcing will be moderating a panel with VCs and crowdsourcing companies like Cambrian House.
