the "upstream" repository (as opposed to hosting something elsewhere).
The new SourceForge git support is interesting, but GitHub definitely
has made a lot of nice stuff and in short order.
> So sourceforge does have a project takeover process if we need it?The only thing I found was this:
I don't intend on pinging SourceForge Support for at least a couple
weeks (not sure what a good wait time is).
I updated the _SiteTemplate.tmpl in www/ and pushed it to the gh-pages
branch which is responsible for this content:
http://rtyler.github.com/cheetah/ (awesome Gimp skill on the logo huh? :))
(I also updated the credits.html to include recent patch contributors)
I've lost motivation for the night to figure out how to generate a new
set of docs for all the TeX files that are responsible for the Cheetah
docs, not knowing TeX has something to do with that I presume. I'd
welcome any help on that from you guys :)
I feel like we should be coming up with an agenda, or at least some
semblance of a list of bugs that need resolving, etc; projects with
goals and TODOs tend to do well. The only two things on my list are
updated/more tests and starting some speed optimizations (we spend some
amount of time filling templates). Other things like Py3k come to mind,
but is Python 3000 even necessary at this point?
Ideally I'd like to get a point release per-month if possible (if there
are changes there to be released).

Heh, yes sir!

To humour you, I just went ahead and tried (since it's effectively the
same calling from the US to Canada)

Jan and David live there now, they sound nice.
My personal feelings on the ethos of open source is along the lines of
Michael's such that projects exist in more of a community realm. That is
not to say I don't understand your concerns for Tavis and *his* project.
Tavis has created something wonderful that's been quite useful to me,
and I believe many of you. I feel it would be disingenuous of us to let
his project languish in his absence.
I certainly don't want to split off from the original goals Tavis
outlined for Cheetah. From communitycheetah.org:
Why Community Cheetah:
The primary motivations for the Community Cheetah fork is to
maintain active development outside of the currently-stale
Cheetah CVS tree. Community Cheetah isn't meant to diverge from
the main goals of Cheetah: speed, ease of use and stability, but
rather Community Cheetah is meant to reinvirgorate the community
surrounding Cheetah and provide monthly releases incorporating
patches and improvements to the engine.
End of the day, I don't want to replace Tavis or take the project in a
different direction, I want to help Tavis' "pet project" (as you put it)
grow up and continue to live on regardless of whether or not Tavis is
here to care for it.
Consider me the house keeper until Tavis gets back ;)
