Often developers get frustrated with the process and simple publish their own WINE branch, but that means the code never gets into the main WINE project.
That, I don’t understand. And it’s not just Wine but a majority of open source projects as well. It seems that core developers will just ignore any contribution until it is ready for inclusion in the master branch. They will also ignore code present in other similar projects that could be used as an inspiration for their code base.
This seems to be so uncommon to do it that in some circles, the practise of reading external source code in order to implement features in a project in known as “stridering”.
Am I breaking some Free Software taboo here? Are there egos at risk?
