comment Sharing on Github
@cHao: There is a big difference between binary and source. GPL only applies to source if it directly contains covered parts. But it applies to binary that is linked to the GPL code. Since the process of linking uses information from the library being linked to, arguing that the linked binary is a derived work seems possible.

comment Integrate WebDav deployment with git?
@RSG: Software deployment is probably borderline between stackoverflow.com (which is about programming) and serverfault.com (which is about administration). In either case this site is not for technical details.

comment Integrate WebDav deployment with git?
This question is definitely off-topic here. It might be on-topic on stack-overflow, but it would need rewording to ask "how to export from git to webdav" as the current wording will most likely be seen as asking for software recommendation, which is off topic by definition (and while there is softwarerecs.stackexchange.com, you risk getting "no" as the only answer there).

comment How to become .net programmer without going to a computer institute?
@Raphael: Career advice is off-topic by definition on programmers and, I believe, all of stack exchange.

comment Why doesn't the HTML\DOM specification allow hyperlinks to set an accept header?
@ParthianShot: True. I don't do web apps, so I didn't remember how it works. It is apparently more suitable to provide the client a list to choose from (which is usually short) than having the client list all the things it supports.

comment How does one store a website's holding/maintenance page in Git?
@MasterRoot24: There is no 'git way of doing things'. There are only 'version control best practices' that apply to all version control systems. Even if you use directories, tarballs and patches like Linus did for 10 years before he wrote git. And these say that branches are for parallel history, not parallel variants.

comment How does one store a website's holding/maintenance page in Git?
@MasterRoot24: Having two "features" in one branch is the only practical way. I work on project (not web, but it does not really matter) that delivers slightly different versions to more than 10 different customers on 5 different platforms. All the releases are always done from the same branch using conditional compilation and it works fine. Branches would have devolved into madness long ago.

comment How does one store a website's holding/maintenance page in Git?
@MasterRoot24: They are not two sites. The holding page is a special page of the site itself. And therefore goes in the same tree.

comment How does one store a website's holding/maintenance page in Git?
@MasterRoot24: It does not matter whether the site is static or dynamic. The first sentence answers your question and does so generally. Branches are great for history, but not suitable for about anything else. Not specifically in git; in any version control system.
