That seems to be a very technical argument (on both sides); in any case I doubt that a discussion of something that happend 8 years ago helps us in moving the developer hiring proposal forward. As such, lets please get back to the topic. Paolo Vecchi wrote:
With a very odd timing the 02/06/2022 Mr Meeks added to the ESC agenda, during the meeting, the request to actually kill LOOL. From the emails on board-discuss it seems clear that that he doesn't want that in-house developers to even thinking about reviving LOOL to make sure TDF cannot promote even a basic version of it.
Same here - mixing lots of other topics into this discussion is not useful in us making progress. It is also premature, since the ESC is still discussing the matter. Debating the merits of the proposal should happen there, not here (for the while). Unless the board wants to run its own, competing motion for how to deal with the Online repo (which I would consider nonconstructive). Thanks, -- Thorsten
