Why Forking is Bad

14 September 2014

I have always felt that forking an open source project is mostly a waste of energy because for the most part you get 1, 1 rather than 1+1, in other words the synergy of working together is lost by forking. Secondly forking divides the community.  Today, there are a lot of advocates of forking, and […]

“We are using Bacula to backup a number of elements. One of them is the data from the SCOS 2000 application (the generic mission control system software of ESA). We also backup multiple environments related to the deployment of the satellite ground segments. Aside from that, we have a lot of projects being backed up via Bacula: R D and RADAR projects, FOC (Flight Operation Control, i.e. satellite operation planning, as well as command and control of satellites), and more… We do both full and incremental backup, as well as archives. All in all, we re very satisfied with Bacula. The software offers us a consistent, reliable, and powerful platform, and all of this without licensing costs.
