Recently Netmanage contacted members of the ECCO Pro user group at
yahoo, signaling their willingness to open source the application.
A wiki site to discuss the proposal has been set up at:
I submitted a suggestion that the source code of ECCO be contributed to
OpenOffice.org for eventual inclusion in future cross platform versions
I have checked several times. Where is this source code?
I popped on over to check it out, tried downloading the zipped
file-to-be-open-sourced, but was stopped by "You need to supply a username
and password to access this site"
I tried the time-honoured "anonymous" and email address, but it wasn't having
any of that.
might I respectfully suggest that if Netmanage wants to get the Open Source
version of ECCO Pro out to the widest segment of the population, it let
anybody visiting the site, to download ECCO Pro with as little fuss as
possible? The more fuss, the less interest; or so I've experienced.
Secondly, about the sign-up thing, CompuSol even apologizes for it but
feels it necessary.
Several areas of our site require EccoPro membership. We know that
it is a pain to deal with registration and passwords, and we
apologize for that, but hackers and their inappropriate posts,
uploads and spam, especially at the EccoPro Wiki Home forced us to
do so. To get your *EccoPro site membership*

Thirdly, while it is nice that NetManage is releasing EccoPro's source,
can it really be integrated into OpenOffice.org? I am not a programmer,
so that question is rhetorical. EccoPro was designed in the days of
Windows 3. I have heard that it has divers problems, such as having a
very low memory limitation that prevents it from holding much data.
Would it be easier to just duplicate the functionality of EccoPro from
scratch? But then, if I were right, and that were true, I am sure that
it would have already been done, it being such a useful program (though
that isn't necessarily true, many useful proprietary programs haven't
yet been duplicated).
By the way, I am new here. My name is Iain Dalton, I live in the States,
and have been using OpenOffice.org since the project started, and I used
the free version of StarOffice distributed before that. I appreciate all
the hard work Sun and many volunteers have put into this project, and
the results show. Pleased to meet you all. I look forward to many
