Re: Bug#632450: ITP: pmatch -- Duplicate finder and removal tool.
Ok, I didn't see that this ITP already had a discussion. However there are
three minor and subjective issues that I have with this ITP:
- It's not really in the spirit of Open Source of Free Software to start a new
project, if there already are a douzen projects in the same area. If none of
them fits your needs perfectly there should be at least one that could be
extended to your needs instead of starting from scratch.
- It's always better if somebody else beside the upstream author who also
wants a package to be in Debian. In that case there's proof that the package
is at least important for a second person.
- I hate ruby with a passion ... :-)
