Sorry to hear that you were stewing about this. I suspect it feels
better now that it's out in the open (although I'm not convinced this
is the best place for it--it might be, I'm just not convinced...).
I don't have a lot of emotion about this either way (although I admit I
was sad to see you and Victor Mote curtail your contributions to FOP).
Does any record of any of this remain on the web site? No. All trace
of alt-design has been vigorously scrubbed from the site. A bit thank
you to Glen and to Jeremias. Not only does this amount to the
re-writing of FOP history, but it was detrimental to the development
effort. A number of observations which have been made recently were
discussed in detail in the alt-design documentation, notably in
respect of space-resolution and footnotes.
Actually there is a mention on the FOP Resources page:
- [software] Folio a renderer for XML files containing Formatting
Object elements (aka FOP Alt.Design)
It may not be much comfort, but it appears that fop/design/alt.design
wasn't totally removed. Just the links to it were removed. That was
either an oversight on my part (I thought I removed it), or perhaps the
content slipped back in when we switched from CVS to SVN. I found it w
a google search.
In any case, I for one continue to find pleasure in your continued
presence on FOP-DEV. I learn a lot about FOP from your POSTs and am
still feel sadness that you are no longer a member of the FOP Team
(although you still post, which counts, in my book!). If you would like
to talk further about this (either continuing this thread or off-line
which may be more appropriate), I welcome it.
