    That last bit doesn't make any sense.
    Why would Google pay Mozilla Corp hunderts of millions of Dollars every year and then pay someone else for not using Firefox?

    Sure, I am not saying that a handcrafted format would not also be possible.

    A config style format can mimick structure by using path-like keys, using some form of key suffix for keys that can...

    I agree, but AppStream data is not configuration data. These are data records, data base entries formatted for transfer.

    XML, or rather the tooling available for it, allows for a wide range of...

    Yes and no.

    There are several different options someone distributing GPL licensed code has to comply with the license.

    One is to ship the code with the software. This is the one you are...

    This is only an option if your leaving does not impact anyone else.

    In this case, where the person is maintainer of certain components, or when the person has other structural or organisational...

    It depends a lot on the type of the shared product and the type of the product the company is creating.

    JSON might have been the choice if this would have been created nowadays. As I said:history context.


    True, not sure though if there is a specified nesting syntax, not very common in INI style...

    It is always possible to specifiy a custom format, but requiring each participating party to write respective custom parsers can slow down the uptake.

    Not sure what you mean by web of trust, but I think it depends mostly on the target platform.

    It is unlikely to work e.g. on Linux where (a) there is easy access to development tools needed to...

    The choice is also affected by historical context.
    While JSON is very popular and thus widely supported right now, it has not always been outside the JavaScript world.

    XML, on the other hand, has...

    Yes and no.
    Yes, it has multiple backends, no, SQLite is not the default on upstream.
    Distributors might have changed the code to have a different default though, but more likely switching to...

    One important thing to keep in mind is that games are not the only type of applications using OpenGL.

    Sure, the benchmarks are mostly done using game engines due to the lack of easy access to...

    It does not replace D-Bus:
    It replaces the transport used by D-Bus and makes the kernel the instance applications register theri D-Bus connection with.

    It is a very different thing. It allows KDE e.V. to represent the signee, the signee retains full rights to their contribution, the signee can at any time revoke it and so on.

    Canonical's work is not necessarily platform specific I guess.
    Since Ubuntu Touch is using QtQuick and Trojita is currently QWidget based, there is likely adapter code that Trojita could be...
