  • I agree that this can be a real problem, but it seems like one that is easily overcome with a little commonsense (or a good project manager!) The constraints and objectives of the project should dictate how much “Yak shaving” is necessary. If your goal is to tinker and learn it’s probably a great way to proceed. If, on the other hand you are building something with a deadline, budget, client, etc usually, the fastest, cheapest, most effective solution is best and that often involves off-the-shelf purchases.

No public wish lists :(
