Dear LORD in heavens.
Makes me wonder if HR people do investigate whether “contributor”
actually means “commit whore”.
The type of companies that hire through HR people, no, they don’t
check. Maybe Google’s HR does, but even there I doubt it. Hiring
through HR people is a guarantee for questions like, “We need five
years of Rails experience, do you have that?”
On a less flamey note, that change is just too silly to be in the core
library, I don’t need -yet- another “foo is a synonym for bar” in the
I did say it was the whiniest change ever. It might be too silly for
the core library, hell, it’s probably too silly for its shirt – so
silly it hurts – but using “a” where I should use “an” just sets off
my inner compulsive librarian.
