Open source maintainer apologizes for having a daytime job
The numerous users of a popular free and open source app PureTorrentDownloader written by a solo developer can now lower their anger and frustration. Peter Pain, the author of PureTorrentDownloader, has apologized for having a daytime job which distracts him from keeping up with bug fixes and developing new features.
Few weeks earlier the users were shocked to learn that Peter only spends at most 2 hours on the open source project during evenings because he has a full-time day job at a consulting agency.
Largely disappointed, the users have taken to Twitter and Reddit, where through long discussions the general consensus was that such behavior is unethical, disrespectful and amateur. Feeling the pressure, Peter had agreed to accept all judgements and his updated characterization, publicly apologized and is now seeking to quit his position as soon as he finds a buyer for his twice remortgaged house.
