Re: What a ranker!
DJ I have every respect for you as a developer and I have for a long time. In a open source way, you really have done this all wrong. There was no need for you to go off and do all that by yourself when we could have done it as a team.
Right now, Xoops has no core development team spirit, no direction, no nothing, not even a roadmap (which is damn right disgusting). We have 4 different version all going at the same time, and what will happen to the work that has been don on these version?
In all honesty, we should have halted production and development on 2.18, and then all focussed our attention on version three. When you split development, you split resources and development times. In a large scale project like this, there is no way this should happen. With this result, other projects like Joomla has now worked on 3 (yes three) large scale versions and currently is leaving Xoops in the backend of no where.
In a open source project, that is a recipe for disaster and will lead to the down fall of any project and from what I can see, this is already happening.
Is it really that hard to put a team together and work from the same hymn sheet or we asking for the impossible?
