Government’s Not Working: GitHub Files a Bug
BUG: Government occasionally shuts down.
QA 01: Looks like we’ve been patching the original source for 200+ years.
QA 02: It seems that allocateFunds depends on the Congress class without any proper error handling, causing a complete shut-down of all non-essential system services. Perhaps a reserve allocation is required to ensure the system can use it when no resources are available.
QA 03: I looked into the ‘Constitution’ module and it’s shot to hell. The original base had little or no supporting documentation, leading to various conflicting interpretations of the desired functionality. What’s worse, it’s been patched like crazy, and some of these patches even contradict each other (for example, amendments 18th and 21st). Recommend re-factoring the entire code base, incorporating the more useful patches (such as amendments 15th,19th) into the baseline.
QA 04: Um, has anyone seen the crazy fragmentation in the congressional district db? That can’t be helping things.
QA 05: Note that @JeffersonDavis actually forked this project before. A lot of people contributed, but @WhiteHouse had IP concerns and shut that down.
FJP: And on and on it goes.
