ALL of launchpad has been opened - Jef"I am the pusher robot"Spaleta

ALL of launchpad has been opened
Including the components which were previously slated to be held back... this is a pleasant surprise. 


Considering all the crap I gave them for intending to leave Soyuz closed, it seems only fair that I now salute them for deciding to open up all the components. Fair's fair. I tip my hat to them for deciding to open up the entire codebase.  It will be fascinating to see how the Debian community will choose to make use of it, including the Soyuz stuff.  If Shuttleworth is serious about coordinated freeze points with Debian, finding a way to  communicate with a Debian community run instance of the launchpad codebase might make it easier.

...that it was Karl Fogel who made the announcement. Maybe he's having an impact over there. :)

Re: Interesting...

But his previous communications in the launchpad blog left much to be desired. It read as thinly veiled rationalization for keeping Soyuz closed. So thinly veiled that it was easy for me (with my reduced mental capacity) to cut them to shreds.
But in hindsight, maybe that was deliberately done on his part and he used me to strengthen his own plan to see Soyuz and Codehosting opened. That would be pretty awesome, for him to wield me so adeptly as a tool while I spun around blindly punching at things.

Wow Jef, you're really full of yourself aren't you?

Now that it's open, I hope you bother to look at it :) Personally, I'm a bit more interested in their URL mapper, which follows a pattern I haven't seen before.
