    1. That’s pretty gnarly. While the name of the constant LOOSE_APP_ASSETS gives me some idea of what it does, it still takes a second to wrap your mind around. If you were trying to figure out what assets are being precompiled and you did a puts config.assets.precompile that lambda object would be utterly baffling.

    1. While the very same software might be in a PPA and a snap, the fact that the snap is shown in Ubuntu Software is the point I’m making. Many people use that to install software. So making software appear there is beneficial for developers - their software is found, and beneficial for users - they discover new software.
    2. In addition, PPAs are awful for software discovery. Average users have no idea what a PPA is, nor how to configure or install software from it. Part of the point of snap is to make software discovery easier. We can put new software in the “Editor’s Picks” in Ubuntu Software then people will discover and install it. Having software in a random PPA somewhere online is only usable by experts. Normal users have no visibility to it.

    1. Or, to echo @jeremy in #24417 (comment 215479841): Yay for hotkeys, but I had no idea until ... Let's make this useful feature more discoverable!
    2. "2 years ago": Note that you can already automatically quote part of a previous comment by selecting it and pressing the r key. Me: Wait, what, you mean this feature — which I have often wished for, and people keep asking for (#217171, opened 2 months ago) — has already existed in GitLab for over 2 years and I just didn't realize it?! In fact, I was just coming to suggest this feature when I found these existing open issues. :)
    3. Yes I agree. No one brother to find this feature except system admin and no one know a R shortcut.
    1. I just learned (from #24417 and #21316) that this feature actually exists already — it's just only available via a hot key (select some text and press r to quote some text for reply) so it's not easily discoverable.
    1. On a side note, I just learned that you can do this now by highlighting text in an issue and pressing r. Yay for hotkeys, but I had no idea until I read about it in https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/43716

    1. importance of data discoverability: an informatics issue that was not considered by WWARN's designers in the initial phase, when it was assumed that access for external users would be limited to the summary data shown on the WWARN Explorer. Discoverability - the ability of potential outside users to find the data set and easily understand what it contains - is critical if the data are to be reused by any investigator with a legitimate research question that may be addressed by data held in the resource. WWARN took care to develop data management tools that included a full audit trail for the variables that they standardised.
