More work for the userland
I can’t spend the end of month to convert over 10000 files manually one by one and push them to Git. I don’t want to loose all the previous revisions of SVG file on Pepper&Carrot too! And what if I do it ; then Inkscape tells me I have to do it again for the future Inkscape 0.93? This type of development decision, relying on ‘userland must fix it themselves’ must stop. I hate when I have to admit that using open-source is actually a production handicap in this type of scenario.
So, first, let accept it: 0.92 is a released version. Not a beta, not an alpha. No. It’s released as a major. stable. version. This version will hit all the GNU/Linux distros, Windows and Mac users will download this new version from the official website and problems with SVG files will hit Pepper&Carrot. Downgrading my local install to 0.91, blacklisting 0.92 SVG files on the renderfarm and advising all 40 translators to not update to 0.92 is a short-term fix and not a pleasant one.
This is really saddening to see.
