Ken Jones hasn't contributed to vpopmail and qmailadmin development since March. We've had 12 qmailadmin releases and 7 vpopmail releases since then. Managing the projects on SourceForge keeps everything out in the open, and allows anyone to contribute.
I see all new releases are full of bugs, and there is not a smooth transition over versions.
while i wouldn't go so far as to say *full* of bugs, there do seem to be new and different/interesting bugs with each release. That's of course expected, however with the frequency of releases, it leads to uneasiness. I'm frankly still on vpopmail version 5.3.18, and have been waiting before upgrading, looking for a good long 'quiet period' - no reports of significant bugs after the release has been in the field for a while.
like many administrators, when a new release comes out, i don't immediately put it into production. i wait at least two weeks before even beginning to consider an upgrade. Let others who are willing thresh the bugs first. this tends to minimize 'bug bites' in production.
i'd prefer to see a single vpopmail, and see ken's active participation. whether he shoudl be an admin or not is something i can't provide an informed opinion on. but if i had my druthers, i'd like to see tom and ken bury the hatchet and work cooperatively. that implies compromise from both towards a mutually agreeable middle ground.
