Today’s #archink prompt has been interpreted by me in a very archaeoinformatics way…

@KatherineRCook has invited archaeologists or anyone else interested in joining her archaeology-specific “Inktober”-challenge #archink. Every day in October there will be a new prompt on Twitter for us to be creative with.

Today’s prompt was “Feature” and all I could think of is how I sometimes are annoyed that I need to write a git commit message.


git commit messages are a feature not a bug
