There's this other irritating myth about b2evo that says we are "carelessly" integrating hacks.
Would you please "care" to look at the code before relaying that? >:XX
As a matter of fact, as of today, b2evo has integrated as many as 0 (yes, that reads ZERO!) hacks on top of b2 version 0.6.1.
All new features have been developed specifically for b2evo. We are actually considering including some hacks, but we haven't done it yet since we are talking with the authors about merging them in a clean way into the b2evo codebase. That means the author joining the dev team and integrating the hacks in a manner that is everything but "careless".
A little bit of wisdom:
“Skepticism without investigation is the worst form of ignorance.”
Yes, tell them to look at the code next time!
