There are some unused "cowsay" binaries
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Thanks to this Task:

T15401: Make the Remarkup Help Page Extensible

And thanks to the user speck, I discovered there are some cowsay-related binaries:


Probably most of these are unused, because since 2015 Cowsay it's written in PHP and part of Arcanist:

Why I think it's important to remove unused binary files:

  • the ITSec team is less scared if they cannot find less legacy binaries around
  • the embed team is more happy to save extra bytes from the working directory or phorge in production
  • it seems that these things need to be updated with time to receive updates (e.g. security updates), but actually only the "cows" files need to be updated (just to have more)
