Journal SJS's Journal: Whiners

Apparently, the folks behind "Hudson" (a project I've never heard of and probably don't care about) are so upset with Oracle that they're going to change their name.

(See http://www.hudson-labs.org/content/hudsons-future )

Has Oracle actually done something objectionable, with regards to the Hudson project?

No.

Has Oracle indicated that they're likely to do something objectionable, with regards to the Hudson project?

Again, no.

But, you see, they /might/. And because they might do something objectionable in the future, it's vitally important *now* to adopt the course of action that would be required later.

There's a possibility that something bad might happen, which would require the project to take drastic steps to, oh, change its name or something. Because that's such a terrible prospect to consider, obviously the best way to keep that from happening is to act as if the bad thing has in fact happened, and take the drastic step of renaming the project.

Yes, it doesn't make sense to me either. It's like giving yourself a black eye before the alleged neighborhood has spoken a harsh word.

Some people just have to borrow grief.
