Is Your Personal Area Network Giving You the BlueZ?
I am always very reluctant to criticize developers of free and open software. It is all too easy to forget or take for granted the enormous amount of dedicated work that goes into projects like BlueZ and to moan and gripe over minor bugs and missing features. On the whole, I have nothing but admiration for these wonderful people. But, if I could just gently and humbly raise one point, it would be that the documentation for BlueZ seems very thin on the ground. In fact, that's what motivated me to write this article in the first place (for example, there is no man page for the /etc/bluetooth/main.conf file). Anyway, let's hope this is a temporary glitch in an otherwise unblemished record of developmental excellence.
