I agree with the diversity point and would also like to see more diversity among the community developers.
I don't see NCSU stopping our efforts on VCL development, but that is just my view point. NCSU has a great deal invested in our time, resources, and other research projects using VCL services. In addition the NCSU population would not be very happy if VCL was discontinued. Our usage numbers for last week hit close to 6000 reservations for over 2500 users. Anyone in the community who is interested in getting more involved in the development process, please don't hesitate to speak up either on the list(preferred method) or directly to any of the active developers(myself, Andy Kurth, or Josh Thompson). We can guide you through the process of getting more involved. We'd love to hear from you. Thanks, Aaron On Sun, Sep 4, 2011 at 7:55 PM, Alan D.
