Well I knew it would not be long.

Its finally hit the news!
http://www.newsforge.com/newsvac/05/08/18/1413218.shtml

I think it will probably get a lot louder before it gets quiet again.

Please dont reply to this post unless its to post a link to a news topic. It would be good to keep a record of all the news posts for future reference, some will be accurate some will not be, but it will be a good resource for ALL parties involved to keep abreast of whats being printed and whats being said outside our nice little mambo er i mean whatsyname CMS garden. :D

Current forum users 260 Guests and 82 Users.  The server is handling the load quite nicely if I do say so myself.  Load average is below 5.00 and the server isn't even breaking a sweat. :)

People have always said, if a web site can survive "The SlashDot Effect", it can survive anything.

Not intended to steal your thunder.
You must be well aware of my propensity to create lists.  ;D

Good to have many eyes looking for this news coverage.
And to have this in more than one place.

Some coverage with a touch of OpEd and some interesting WaybackMachine archives:

"We put Mambo on Source Forge in order for people to help get the code 'straightened out' so that it could be re-released commercially." [via WaybackMachine archive of statements made on MamboServer - April 2003]

idg.se article and a translation below:
http://www.idg.se/ArticlePages/200508/1 ... XW.dbp.asp

The developers of Mambo and Miro choose to go in a different path

Miro is trying to take control over the open source project Mambo, asserts the developers of the project, who have left Mambo and started up Opensourcematters.org.

The content managing system has won a numerous of awards around the world. The latest award was the best open source solution on Linuxworld in San Fransisco.

Mambo has it origin from a CMS solution developed by the australian Miro, which released it on Sourceforge under the GPL license. It didn't took long time before developers flocked round the application and everything was in peace and order until the day Miro took decision to withdraw the product and revoke the GPL license.

Because of the source code had been elaborated under GPL, the community manage put pressure on Miro and force the company to release the source code a further time. It was in this occasion that Mambo was born.

Miro announced during the last week Linuxworld that the company has founded a foundation which has as aim to take care of Mambo in the future. This looks at the surface as a good idea but this has been made without the 19 developers knowledge who have developed Mambo on more or less full time basis and have now started up on their own.

According to the developers with Andrew Eddie and Brian Teeman in the front are Miros actions only a further attempt to take control over the application.

In the continuation we are with all probabality going to see two different project based on the present Mambo. One project will be developed by Opensourcematters.org, who consist of 19 developers who have left Mambo, while the other project will be developed under Miros direction.

You can read more on Opensourcematter website and on the website for Mambo.


Translation of an article in idg.se dated 20th of August. IDG is Swedens biggest publisher of computer magazines.

I am just curious as a newer member of the cms-without-a-name (which, unfettered, will eventually eclipse the name of its ancestors,) who wants to speak intelligently about this cms to others, how did it turn out with Brian Connelly, did he go away or was there a lawsuit?  I noticed they quote him in the above eweek article.

(I was glad to read that the Robert Castley resigned from the foundation) http://forum.mamboserver.com/showpost.p ... tcount=382

Brian Connely...... >>>>>

I can't believe it, but he is actually going ot get some more press from all of this.  That media leach is going to hang on for all he is worth.  Another two minutes to go with his last fifteen minutes of fame.

Not only that, but he is positioning himself as the prophet in the desert proclaiming to the general populace the evils of the Roman Empire.  His answers to the questions clearly show that he intends to use the core devs departure as supportive of his own issues.  Unbelievable. 

I guess its true, you can't kill a tick.

Actually, I've found that soaking a tick in Tea Tree oil kills them good. ;)

That would also probably work for Mr. Connolly, altho I'm sure the legal ramifications of drowning a troll in Tea Tree oil would be somewhat daunting.

Hey guys sorry to be a moaner, but I started this thread with the instructions to post any News stories and NOT to discuss them, you can use other threads for that.

The idea of this thread is that people can find all the news stories they want quickly without going through a ton of posts.

So keep it on topic or I will be after you Mr Eddie ;)
