Because this is how my morning is going, I decided to commemorate it with a poem:
Edit: Title suggested by @0x56, thanks!
The Branch Not Maintained
Purchase a copy of the poster here
Two branches diverged in a project on Git,
And sorry I could not push to both
And be one designer, long I sit
And analyzed one as best as I could
Through the tangled CSS undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because the styling was basic and bare;
Though having been cloned the developer there
Had built them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
Awaiting the project’s first pull request.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted the first would ever be addressed.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two branches diverged on Git, and I—
I pulled the one less traveled by,
And now there are several merge conflicts.
