One addendum to what Richard delineated about the transition from
Metacard to Revolution after Kevin bought the Metacard engine from Scott
The agreement between Scott Raney and Kevin and its details is one
matter, the commitment made by Kevin to members of the Metacard user
group is another.
I had a discussion with Kevin at that time about the future relation of
Metacard and Revolution. Among other things I had proposed to keep and
maintain Metacard as a sort of "Revolution lite" that would have of
course less features than were planned for Revolution.
Kevin disagreed to this proposal, probably fearing a competition in his
own house then, also in financial terms. I do not remember exactly what
he said concerning this point. But he assured me that the compatibility
of all future Revolution engines with the Metacard IDE would be
guaranteed. I do not know which other members got similar messages, but
that is what he promised to me at least.
We might find these messages in the old archives.
