git-annex is incredible software. One of the tools that powers @fossandcrafts and many other projects I work on.

Thank you @joeyh!

@cwebber @fossandcrafts @joeyh I think that's probably the first software project I donated money to. :)
Still have the stickers... Somewhere.

Great stuff.

@cwebber @fossandcrafts @joeyh I researched a little bit on it earlier and I don't really understand it well. Is it like git-lfs?

@ekaitz_zarraga @fossandcrafts @joeyh Yes, git-lfs is largely inspired by git-annex. git-annex is a bit more complex but much more powerful.

@cwebber (yes, I can hack a little bit on GCC but also be completely unable to understand a normal software tool)

@ekaitz_zarraga Reading your GCC blogposts are high priority for me on my reading queue!

@cwebber don't worry, the last one is really uninteresting...
Now I want to study common lisp but I have to work on tinycc... I hate to make promises!

@ekaitz_zarraga Honestly the stuff you're doing right now is damn cool and if I had more time I'd be trying to understand it all a lot more closely.

@cwebber Let's chat one day and I'll explain you anything you want. But I need to understand spritely in exchange.
