Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Arsdigita is done !!

Posted by Ben Adida on
David, I'm sorry to hear that you feel that way about OpenACS
developers. We are an open group with no censorship, which
means that much gets said  on this discussion forum that
represents personal opinions.

It is certainly true that we have been frustrated at times with
certain things that ArsDigita has done, and I believe this was
with good reason. However, we have always worked to
collaborate with ArsDigita and to give ArsDigita credit for the
work they produced which enabled this project in the first place.

At the end of the day, we are part of an open-source
development community. We all take heat for our mistakes
(certainly Don and I have). We wanted aD to be part of this
community, which means getting recognized, but also taking
heat for *your* mistakes. That's part of the deal. I wish more
people could see the power in this somewhat ruthless
environment. I'm sorry that you've only been exposed to the heat,
and not to the accolades.

If you're willing to give us another chance as an individual
developer, we'd love to get more ArsDigita people involved. This
is an honest invitation.
