Hey george,
it's good to have you back :)i'm eager to see your changes, and i pray that it does not breakeverything again... (knowing that this is quite impossible)However, there has been a lot of bugfixing in the last time, and iwould be glad if we could have new features (especially wich breakexisting code) to receive real bugfixing/unittesting too, not when itis too late for that and the gem is released already.So, what i am thinking of, is use of 0.28.1 instead of 0.29.0 - isthat too radical? - i mean, we all want to get a 1.0 out there, but iwant also to have stable/unstable releases to wich i can stick whensomething bad happens.ATM our main-app is still back at 0.25 (wich will change today) and wewill use a snapshot of the glycerin-repo instead (wich is the moststable thing we had in months).I will not change the repo afterwards without testing of course, but istill favor it over the use of gems, because every release of nitroseems to have one or two really annyoing bugs.so if we had more releases of gems, would that confuse everybody?
i really encourage you to disagree with me and point out the errors inlogic i've made, but this is not about logic for me, there is acommunity wich deserves more recent stable releases.
Another thing is that we really need a Trac - the dev-team is onlyglued with the ML and small parts via IRC - we need a better andbroader platform of discussion, bugtracking, overview of the changesand maybe even a place to get into developing easier.
Anyway, this is just random rant about topics that need someclarification - nobody knows when Trac is coming into the game and wehave no real releasing-policy yet, wich are both important points forthe future.
The thing with the developer-core is another thing that really works :)We have got specialists for just about every aspect of nitro/og/facetsnow wich are making the lives of us all a lot easier (and i have tothank all of you for that, just come to tokyo some day and i willoffer you some free beer :)
Oh, and before i forget - we need a paypal-link :)
gotta go now, hope this is a nice summary of organizational thingsthat are on our todo-list~~~~manveru
