wrt to your assumptions:bolverk wrote:...
Then I can only assume you do not have the underlying skill set and background in software development process that would allow it to *make sense* to you. Regardless of it's making sense to you, it is in fact an industry standard and I explained exactly why along with the two-fold value it adds by being defined as such. What part of my previous explanation are you having difficultly with? Or did you not even read it?
i read your credentials you published here, and based on them i can assure you that i have more experience in software development than you do, inside and outside of fortune 500.
now that we are done (i hope) with the "mine is bigger than yours" part, i believe you are plain wrong with how "requirements" are used *with other software packages*.
i challenge you to show a single mainstream *PHP based* package that lists the servers it "supports".
zilch. php packages will list *the PHP versions* they are compatible with, and may add some stipulations like "available memory", "available "disk space" or "database engine".
i do not appreciate your tone, especially when you talk bull.
"what part of what i said do you not understand" is an arrogant phrase that carries the implied assumption that *what you said* is by definition correct.
this is something Linus may say on lkml, or Larry Wall on some perl mailing list. your credentials do not carry enough weight to use such a phrase.
