bzr branch lp:bikeshed
- While others debate where some tool should go, we put it in the bikeshed.
- Description: random useful tools that do not yet have a permanent home
Bikeshed is a collection of random but useful tools and utilities that either don't quite fit anywhere else, or have not yet been accepted by a more appropriate project. Think of this package as an "orphanage", where tools live until they are adopted by loving, accepting parents.
