shhh

just imagine how good the look on his face would be when he finished all his work and then was like,

Code:
git checkout my_work_of_incomparable_beauty
git pull origin master
echo 'OHMYGODAOIDSHASOIDHSAOISHDA'

Well, if you look around at the currently (or conceivably) updating variants, you have
  • PosChengband, NPPAngband and (if you want to include it as a variant) Sil, none of which are likely to be downstream from current V;
  • danaris' incipient variant, which is based off the new codebase as it evolves;
  • various others which may update again, but for the most part have forked from V a long time ago and are never going to try to update their interface from V;
  • FAangband, Oangband.

So what I actually seem to be doing is shooting myself comprehensively in the foot, probably with one of debo's rockets.

What I want to claim I'm doing is making life easier for future variant maintainers; I think the one thing I can be really confident I am achieving is making life difficult for the devteam
