I think what he's doing is a good idea. Quit beating the guy over it. A simple mirror isn't that useful, but if that's what's needed in order to help develop his seeder concept, so be it.
I'm actually getting a little tired over people griping over others developing software. You should have seen the reaction of posters on 4chan to this, the bunch of idiots they be.
Then there's the whole Albright story. He develops something useful and people hound him. Fine, the first version was horribly ugly, but after he fixes it people still moan and groan. They come up with stupid shit like, "You're forcing people on wakachan to use it." I think it's amazing Albright hasn't walked away from the community in disgust.
Yes, I think Wakaba's the best, but I also think it should stand on its own merits. As for SWG's efforts, what he's slowly building could come in very useful one day.
Quit being a bunch of killjoys on development.
