Starting off the week on a light note, Hannes Magnusson has posted a few reasons why *not* to write for the PHP.net manual.
His tongue-in-cheek list includes:
- You get a free pass to conferences by converting your work into presentation
- You get a "trading card" and considered a star
- You can flame the documentations without needing to do anything about it
- You can license your work to forbid any commercial use or further improvements
Hannes also responds in a later comment to the post:
More and more people are thinking about themselves and publish their work on their blog or sell it. There isn't anything wrong with that, but its very annoying that user need to search for information on blogs, commercial websites or magazines rather than the manual.
