Among programmers, yet another is an idiomatic qualifier in the name of a computer program, organisation, or event that is confessedly unoriginal. Stephen C. Johnson is credited with establishing the naming convention in the late 1970s when he named his compiler-compiler yacc, since he felt there were already numerous compiler-compilers in circulation at the time.
The New Hacker's Dictionary
[From Unix's yacc(1), ‘Yet Another Compiler-Compiler’, a LALR parser generator] 1. Of your own work: A humorous allusion often used in titles to acknowledge that the topic is not original, though the content is. As in ‘Yet Another AI Group’ or ‘Yet Another Simulated Annealing Algorithm’. 2. Of others' work: Describes something of which there are already far too many. See also YA-, YABA, YAUN.
