Re: Transifex and rant
Damn, I can't edit.... Use of NewBB must be banned, and this crappy module to go in history where it's place is it! SMF changed license - use it!, phpBB3 is GPL - use it, this crappy thing is nothing more then Notes/Board - something like old BBS!
Even Master Yoda have limits...
They reject to follow simple rules
We've talked about this several times and the result is ZERO
+ Chagelogs for everything
Avaman moves from RC to Final in silent mod and nothing is changed as fact
+ Language files to be kept up to date even translations, what for people on TX loosing their time to keep modules up to date, when modules still are released and distributed with outdated translations
+ Specific string to be added to existing language files in about.php which will direct credits to the specific Language Team Translator
eg. Cesag (cesag-email@somewhere) as Team Language coordinator for French translations, who the hell knows that with current way of translating files ?
+ Naming and versioning - still everyone makes releases on their own, no matter of what
+ One and only support forums, those at XOOPS.org
++ Not forced registrations on 3rd party sites for simple task to obtain a module
++ Respecting GPL, which says - all modules must be available for free for everyone if they are released for free.
+++ No one must be forced to register to author's site to obtain module or theme
+++ No one must be forced to use Spanish forums to report bugs for RMCommons, and/or to learn Spanish to understand the interface of the site for this specific module
All Module developers must be forced to use specific rules, but what example will be this if the main module maintainer for XOOPS, not follow!
All Theme designers (and module developers) must read GPL before to release anything, any aggressive act against GPL must be treated by XOOPS.ORG.
Every module/theme designer must react on user requests on this forum, NO I will not Learn nor Spanish, nor French, nor anything different then English to use my favorite (probably less in this days), bcz everyone want and do all things in their way!
Bitcero u was respected in past developer by me, now u are not:
1. U can't throw a post here, regarding latest release of RMCommon and TO NOT respond to user's problems! This is 101% abusive act against XOOPS core and it's community
2. You're files must be available for download without obstructions, this means sites like sourceforge.net - not on your personal Spanish pseudo support sites!
3. When you make promises to update and keep your modules operating, to follow them
Chronolabs aka Wishcraft = running away from obligations is not the way real developers do their job.
If I release something buggy will fix it and will release updates, regularly
Will read users responses and will take care of the problematic situations
Will read licenses before to release any of my paid jobs to public!
...and for many, many other reasons all of your work will be removed from TX before I og
Trabis, no matter how much J! core developers are busy with their specific tasks on sub-projects in extending and developing Joomla! in the way to be made Number 1 choice for CMS, they are responding to community requests, not using someone like Mamba to translate what are u doing and where.
Yeah I've got reply from u, very unsatisfying but a reply.
"We will do that, bcz we decided in that way, if not works in future - we will replace it"
and this explains what's wrong with XOOPS, not any big change for 5 cores, XOOPS 2.5.5 is like XOOPS 126.96.36.199 with just changed administration interface, more bugs and incompatibilities.
2.1 (Development dead release)
2.2 Something freash - dead
2.3 Extended development of 2.0 - adding nothing
2.4 Adding nothing
2.5 Adding nothing, Mamba comes from somewhere and make some modules fully functional with this non-sense release
2.6. Nothing planed to be changed, adding bunch of stuff not requested by anyone, and things that are requested are moved to 2.7 or 3.0, and what again Mamba or someone like him will make this core somehow usable by converting few outdated (really outdated) modules.
Mage: When I got negative reply by someone, I reply him in my way, by my words, I don't tolerate censorship and such idiotic politics.
When someone criticize your work, see if he is right and if is - correct it!
Your countryman are not here to protect your work !
When u're releasing something to operate under specific core, it's must follow the interface and terminology of that core, and u will learn to use it, or make yourself another core!
GIJoe (nothing bad for the dead...but): Yeah he made some good extensions for 188.8.131.52, but does his bugs must present in 2.5.5 ? Who is responsible for that ?
Catz: Best of the best (towards with Marc andre and solo): Really hope to see u back, in the core development of XOOPS, not in born-dead forks like XOOSLA/Cube/Impress.
Mamba: My hope was in you, at least you will keep language files and translations in their actual states... no comments.
So Cesag will be added instead of Bitcero, which does nothing in Localization tasks!
imtfan will be added as Coordinator too, hopefully he will have more patience then me and 2.6 will come out with INI files, with rules which people follow.
I'll still keep an eye on XOOPS, but will not loose anymore time with it. All my free time will be redirected to projects which are really "community driven". To translate and help localization of projects like CMS Made Simple, Joomla! and Concrete5. Will stay in coordinators team till someone remove me, but will not act until user ask me in PM, like Cesag.
That's all.... for now!
There is a lot of good work happening recently on XOOPS, and we need to focus on the positive and important, and not let the small things impact us.
Taking decisions on core developer's will, without asking no one in the community ? I don't see anything positive in 2.6, except of making more mess
Extension - in world wide usable CMS is something, 3rd part extension/application that extends the core, here simple tasks like plugins are called Applications/Extensions!
I hope, you'll reconsider your decision and help us to make XOOPS the best it can be!
Maybe after XOOPS 2.x (INI) release.... who knows.
