For those unaware, Sean Kerr recently announced that he would be stepping down as the Mojavi project lead due to time and family issues. He asked that illusina (Tyler Tompkins) take over in his absence.
http://forum.mojavi.org/index.php?showtopic=1270&pid=6698&st=0&#entry6698 Tyler has always been interested in maintaining compatibility between Agavi and Mojavi, and it was in that vein that he approached us on Friday. A number of things resulted from that conversation: 1. Mojavi and Agavi are not that different currently. The fork was not that long ago, and while we have filled in a number of holes, we have not "broken" major things in terms of compatibility. 2. Tyler wants to take Mojavi into the public eye. He has assured us that from this point on, he wants Mojavi development, discussion and direction to be visible to the community at large, and we have agreed to help him do just that. This obviously addresses the major reason that we decided to fork in the first place. 3. Mojavi and Agavi do not have different goals. We both want to provide an MVC framework without straying too far from the basic structure. For those reasons and some I've forgotten, the general consensus was to merge the two projects. What this really means is this: * Agavi will continue to work towards 0.10.0, after which or perhaps simultaneously, new development will shift to Mojavi4. * Mojavi will discontinue development on the 3.0.0-DEV branch, and instead begin work on Mojavi4. * The current plan is to incorporate the positive pieces from Agavi (phing integration, unit tests, public development model) into illusina's new ideas for Mojavi (partially laid out here: http://forum.mojavi.org/index.php?showtopic=1236 ). * Mojavi4 looks to be a complete redesign, with a much shorter release-cycle than prior versions. Information will hopefully appear on the wiki (link below) as things are hashed out. http://trac.agavi.org/trac.cgi/wiki/MojaviMergingDiscussion Thanks, --Bob and the rest of the Agavi Developers.
