Dear FOP Developers:
Hi Victor - welcome back. I was saddened by your decision to leave FOP.
After considering a return to FOP development, and briefly discussing the pros and cons with those whom I consider to be the FOP development leaders, I have decided to partially fork FOP into a sourceforge project called FOray: http://foray.sourceforge.net/
Ive taken a look and it all seems to make sense.
The main reason for this is that, at the moment anyway, my development goals are quite different from those of FOP's development team. It is likely that my return to FOP development would be a net disruption to the project, which is not my intent. Instead, my hope is that this vehicle will allow me to continue to get my real work done and still cooperate with the FOP development team.
I do understand why you have decided to start FOray. Although modularisation is a nice feature, I dont see it as a key goal for FOP. FOP's primary objective is to achieve a working layout. The main things needed to achieve this are listed here:
I hope that no one will think that I am recruiting here. I simply thought it would be rude for you to hear about this some other way. I wish you all success.
No I dont think that, it is very polite of you to let us know. I cant speak for the team as a whole, but I hope that we will be able to cooperate to a high extent.
