Recurring offer reminder: I'll help / mentor / teach / tutor / troubleshoot with anyone who wants to learn git for basic version control, collaboration, managing personal projects, or for a day job. I'll work to connect people with mentors other than me if they prefer - no need to explain why.

• Only 28% of patients are able to complete the list of their symptoms without being interrupted by their physician. (Cf. Marvel, M K et al. “Soliciting the patient's agenda: have we improved?.” JAMA vol. 281,3 (1999))

Any system that stores passwords should be audited with regards to how it stores the passwords. Whether the system operates for profit or not.
When I worked at credativ, we often added "this uploaded has been sponsored by $customer" (or similar) to debian/changelog when we fixed things for customers.
Added note that apparently FreeBSD has a tradition of doing this, though without a pseudo-header.
Radiating opinions into the aether. Mostly one-way. All opinions are mine. I don't represent my employer. I mostly don't follow back (I'm easily overwhelmed by a flood of information).
