But why pubish your code at all, then? I think the project needs a goal. (OK, you can get philosophical here and say "But why can't it just be?") And I assumed this to be somewhat traditional, where you have (more or less) frequent releases, a homepage that is (more or less) up to date and answers most questions people might have, people answering the remaining questions, people writing code, people reviewing patches from others, all that stuff. A friendly, welcoming environment, so to speak. Where differences of opinion are not just stated, but lead to a resolution (more or less) all can live with. That's what I wanted to work towards. Not "controlling" the project. But I guess I'm alone with that view. -- "I don't have to take this abuse from you -- I've got hundreds of people waiting to abuse me." -- Bill Murray, "Ghostbusters" _______________________________________________ Warzone-dev mailing list Warzonefirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.berlios.de/mailman/listinfo/warzone-dev
