It's a bit of a story, but I'll condense it as much as possible. First, some needed context... back in late March and early April, a user name "Jart" effectively stole the work of another user "Slaren" on GitHub. They were both working on the llama.cpp project. Slaren (allegedly) and a few other people from that GitHub showed up on the /lmg/ general telling their side, and a lot of drama went down, etc etc... The point is that a Rentry page covering this event was made (https://rentry.org/Jarted)
and it was prominently placed in every general thread post.
Fast forward a few weeks, an anon made a new /lmg/ thread without the Jarted Rentry (after some protest in previous threads to remove it) and many anons lost their shit. At first, it looked like it was just going to be a one day thing, but soon after, the argument dragged on for a whole week and created factions. Soon after, there were multiple /lmg/ threads at once with and without that Rentry. Eventually, things slowed down and more threads going forward didn't have the link. Allegedly, the anon who made the /lmg/ paper list made a post that he would take down his Rentry if it wasn't back up in the OP post. A few days later, it was taken down. (It could also be that he just sick of it all etc...hard to say with confidence). Eventually, a compromise was made by the creation of a drama Rentry page to document and store all future drama Rentry pages. Peace was mostly restored. A few hours after making the post here >>22499
, the anon who originally made the "Local Models Related Papers" returned to /lmg/ threads and brought the Rentry back up.
TL:DR The anon behind the local model Rentry (allegedly) took it down in protest over current drama, but came back soon after the compromise solution to said drama was made.
Sorry for a wall of text, tried my best to recap the event leading to that list being taken down.
