I have recently been introduced to the Open-ACS project, and look forward to watching this project mature. However, it is a little unsettling to hear that some of the core people would give up on such a great project. I have monitored other OpenSource communities, and they all have issues were the project leaders are flamed regularly. Despite the poor attitude of some, there are many people like me that are thankful for everything that the project leaders and contributors have done. I hope that the Major issues are resolved so that this project can continue to move forward, knowing that growing pains are un avoidable.
