  • Who-T: On commit messages

    Any software project is a collaborative project. It has at least two developers, the original developer and the original developer a few weeks or months later when the train of thought has long left the station. This later self needs to reestablish the context of a particular piece of code each time a new bug occurs or a new feature needs to be implemented.

    Re-establishing the context of a piece of code is wasteful. We can't avoid it completely, so our efforts should go to reducing it to as small as possible. Commit messages can do exactly that and as a result, a commit message shows whether a developer is a good collaborator.

You want to get married? Get married. You want to travel the world? Travel. You want date older men? Date. You want to have Shiney Ahuja’s lovechild? Have. The point is, be yourself. You can’t live the world through someone’s else’s dreams.
