Register and Readers line up with “our” Tridge

By johnboy 13 April 2005 1

In the great moral and global IP battle swirling around the use of BitKeeper by Canberra penguin bitee Linus Torvalds and Canberra reverse engineer (and all-round uber-geek amongst many other achievments) Andrew Tridgell, it’s good to get some outside perspective.

Enter global IT arbiters The Register and their reader feedback:

viewed in terms of moral rights Andrew Tridgell is the only party in this dispute who is being entirely consistent.

So Tridge is viewing the formats and messaging etc and making a client to work with it, but McVoy and Linus think he is reverse engineering and straight copying their original, now withdrawn, client?

I’ll sit this one out I think.
