LOL - of course it should be done by boost. But who needs the hassle of
proposing it on the list and going through endless discussion about it
should be placed on the website, who is going to do it, how much better
if would be if ..., arguments that it's outdated, etc. etc. ... ad
I downloaded from wayback machine, put on my site, posted the
announcement on twitter and reddit. It took me 1/2 hour and I'm done.
And now I get a little more traffic to my website at rrsd.com . Just
think about that compared to the normal boost procedure. Many times
trying to reach a consensus is not worth the effort.
The only thing I'm waiting for is to get trolled for using the documents
for personal gain.
