Read the Source

I am all for reading the source, but I do draw a line.  I collect OSS in my ~/src directory.  Eventually this directory gets too big, and I have no idea why I have these projects in my directory.  I work through them one by one, and try to figure out why I downloaded them in the first place.  I am not sure what the percentage is, but it feels to high – too many projects do not have a README that describes what the source code does.  A one line sentence would be great. This is an Apache WebDAV module.

I invariably think that I can decipher the meaning of the code by reading a few files, but chances are if the developer cannot include a minimal README good luck finding comments.  I am a digital pack rat, and only stand to gain back my valuable space. 

$ rm –rf ~/src # is my friend.
