Well what he basically is saying here is that linux repo maintainers are idiots.

Which is nothing but the truth of course.

I'm surprised to see all the resistance to Git, especially since it can make tarballs for those who are addicted to that method.

It's not like the previous release system was based around some super formal development process. I'm pretty sure fox just put out new releases more or less on a schedule, which probably worked out to be fairly arbitrary with respect to the state of the code.

it was 3-4 months unless there's a serious enough bug found right after release which would mean a hotfix, that's about it

in ye olde days it was once a month but not anymore

It seems to me that the current setup pushes TT-RSS a bit more into the field of sysadmins - or people that understand and can do those tasks. At a certain point, especially with the automatic update routine, setting up the software on some shared hosting, Amazon AWS or similar would be the topic of a short how-to document that an end user would dare following, and be successful with.

We're not there anymore. While I agree that setting up git and pulling every now and then is not hard, it's a concept that the uninitiated may have trouble with. Which means that TT-RSS will be a harder thing for them to set up and use.

Not judging in any way here, just stating the (seemingly) obvious.

ah yes all the "uninitiated" who really want to install a self-hosted rss reader but just can't because dang, git is too hard

instead of you know hanging out on facebook or whatever and never caring about any of this shit

FreeBSD has a package itself, similar to linux distros I guess and they seem to have happily managed to switch to git using the package framework: http://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports/head/ww ... iew=markup although it's pegged to a specific git commit and I guess they'll just be updating that commit occasionally. It's still easier though to just use git by itself. I don't really understand why you would bother with the package. How the hell are people complaining that running two different commands is hard.

Too bad the releases are over. I was conveniently using Installatron with my web hoster. Their version is still at 1.15.3. I'll see what I can do to manually upgrade periodically. I probably cannot run git with a cron tab on my VPS.

For people on VPS or shared hosting, take a look at git-ftp: . I'm not using it for TT-RSS myself, but it is really easy to setup.
