Everyone is allowed their opinion.
Just not to express them, right?
Rico I think you will find that yours is a minority view.
That doesn't make it wrong though, does it?
The core team has published a very well thought out letter to the community and they have acted quickly to insure that development and support will continue.
That is precisely the problem some are trying to point out: Core acted, and THEN published a letter to explain why, just as Miro acted and then made their announcement. In both cases, the so-much-talked-about community was never involved.
Let's stop shooting the messanger. Robert came out on the mamboserver forums and did his best to answer questions and was piled on for it.
Stingrey has also done his best to be as forth coming as he can at the moment, and now folks want to throw fits and go after him.
No-one is after Rey, he's always been the most "public" of the Core devs, helpful. What some are after is not people, but answers.
Take a breath and give it a few days, if your projects are that critical then surely you must have something to work on while these matters are resolved. WHY the core team did what they did seems very apparent to most of us. And most of us are standing behind them totally.
WHY is apparent to most of you, not to me (as due to legal matters, it can't be explained). Standing behind them, of course, but that doesn't keep me from not liking the modus operandi.
It seems we all have a choice to make, where are we going to look for the future of this CMS. Here or mamboserver. Simply make a choice on what you know to date.
Not really much of a choice, don't you think? Miro has vanished, "official" forums are dead and users there abandonned.. where's the choice?
That is all you or anyone can do at this time.
Which is unfortunate. No perspectives don't make for a bright sight of the future. I can't do anything? Why should I stay then?
DEMANDING answers to questions that wont be answered yet is just asking for frustration and is a total waste of everyones precious time.
I am frustrated already. It is not a waste of time, as it makes it clear that these questions are there, waiting to be answered.. sometime, whenever possible, as soon as possible. Does everyone have to say bravo, well done, good job, and no-one is to speak their mind? I have asked all my questions anyway, and today is my last day posting here, so don't worry, won't bug you no more. I'll post my good-bye later on.
A bit easy to say: that's how it is, accept it and stop asking, you won't get answers anyway. The legal issues put forward as the reason for not providing answers (which is a good reason, I admit, but what exactly are these legal reasons then, that much must be possible to tell?) have arisen because of the way this was handled. Had the dev team stayed, asked for community support (and gotten it obviously), everyone would have been involved. It would have been a free decision to support the dev team; as it stands now, you have to say amen and sign up here, because the other place is dead and abandonned; people haven't been asked if they want to, they are being pointed here by posts saying "if you want answers, go to OSM". It's all about choice, but there was no choice given.
Well, I've seen people try to explain stuff to you before, but you seem quite unwilling to accept and try to understand other views, which is sad. Never mind, doesn't matter, Open Source does
