Re: SourceForge hijacks inactive popular software accounts and adds bundleware

1) It looks like somebody made some very bad decisions at SourceForge

2) SourceForge was good to us for almost 15 years now, and as everybody else, they should get a chance to fix these issues.

3) Our active new development is happening right now on GitHub, so this doesn't effect us much, anyway.

4) However, we'll be monitoring the situation to see if there are other steps required.

Please note: all our themes listed on XOOPS have been recently uploaded to GitHub, so you can fork and improve them there :

a) old archive, for XOOPS < 2.01.14 (753 themes) - probably won't work with current XOOPS version, but might be used as inspiration, if you find interesting ideas there

b) for XOOPS 2.0.14+ (1/2 columns) (197 themes) - most of them should be compatible with current XOOPS

c) for XOOPS 2.0.14+ (3 columns) (674 themes) - most of them should be compatible with current XOOPS

d) Current themes (especially based on xBootstrap), but this will need to be updated, as many recent themes are missing there.

Any volunteers to help us with updating the Current themes?
