I must convey that your answer was a relief for me ;-) I was starting to wonder
what I could have done wrong so that things turn out that way.
I keep your technical comments in mind for later, if I eventually may work on
this. Don't worry about the time I've already spent on: it was necessary for me
to feel capable of working on it. And while doing that I have discovered things
that can be useful for other tasks.
I'm just discovering the political side of open-source development. I guess it
can't be avoided but I just hope that it will not prevent Fop from becoming the
world's best FO processor. I think this goal is not that far away from some
others' . Can't we try to calm down personal conflicts and put the stress on
I'm providing fresh blood. I'm not aware of past conflicts. Perhaps I can act as
a bridge between two different points of vue...
I'm still proposing to work on FOrayFont. In a technical point of vue it would
IMO be best to share a common code repository between the two projects. If it
appears not to be possible Victor will surely accept making a donation, and then
Fop can always develop its own improvements and adaptations on this basis.
However, I wouldn't like this eventuality, towards Victor.
Now perhaps that making a 1.0 release is a priority, at which case I can wait
before doing the work. In the meanwhile I can find other things to work on.
Perhaps it would be an additional benefit for a 1.0 release to have an improved
font subsystem, though.
Team, I'm now letting you make your decision. I'm keeping being connected.
