The only problem I see is bringing about a split in the code if two
groups are continuing active work on it independently. So it's a matter
of deciding whether there is continuing energy in existing code. The
main problem (for all of us) is time to work on it, and interest.
If you create your own sourceforge project and Michael decides he wants
to continue with it, you can easily agree to cooperate after that. I
that he'll be pleased that someone else is getting going on it.
It's pretty clear that there is no energy in core Fit for change, so
that's easy. I'm hoping that a group of us will move that forward. (And
I imagine that we'll put the results on www.fitnesse.info
Little has been done on FitNesse since Micah stopped working on it, as
far as I can see, so I feel happy about building an alternative test
runner for it.

I have tried to send email in the past to Michael Features at

I have a whole slew of enhancements & bug fixes I have made
to the CppTestTools- 2007-02-16- 12-00.zip package available on
What I find strange is that there was a release made on February 16,
2007 so it does not appear that the project has been abandoned.
For the record, VS6/VC97 is still a widely used C++ compiler. We
are using it because it compiles faster binaries from unmanaged code
than newer compilers. It would probly be a good thing to include newer
project files for those using newer VS environments as well as linux
makefile's that work.
If you are using managed code, I don't see why a person would
not just use a .NET language instead.

I would gladly join the C++ team and collaborate on maintenance and
A good start would be making it easier to use "out of the box". Right
now, it requires much more fussing than should be needed.
My user id on sourceforge is 'legalize'. If someone can add me to the
project, then by all means do so and I'll add the C++ source to the
source code control system. You can put me on a branch if you want to
isolate my changes.
