I find this hardly surprising, but sadly predictable. For all the
effort that went into not only OOM1 for USERS, and OOM2 for USERS,
you've implied that somehow we're "scum" because we didn't publicly
acknowledge the codebase, when we'd already been told to fork, and go
our own way. Why is that anything to do with you? We've attributed
correctly, and reached an agreement with the current code team, out of
mutual courtesy. Why do you feel you need to be notified, as if it's a
requirement? You should ask yourself why we picked Werner's great
work, with the formidable wealth of great midi tools under the skin.
I also find it sad that users came to us to get better tools, to do
simple tasks in applications, that they'd failed to get any enthusiasm
for after they'd done the rounds. You'd be surprised how many users
have turned up to get shortcuts (Yes,shortcuts), or navigation
improvements, or other fundamental workflow functions.
I'm not looking for a fight with anyone in the community, on the
contrary, i've put 3 and half solid years into trying to contribute
many years of experience into programs, and with the except of the
notable few devs who have great skills, class and style, and make the
effort to see the user's perspective, we, as a team with a particular
use case, got generally derided and dismissed. Fair enough, devs make
their own decisions, as do we.
But i won't tolerate your implication that we're somehow "not nice
people" because you didn't have a part in any discussion we might have
Enough of this political nonsense, i'm off to do more for our project,
a GPL project, which hopefully will serve the needs of many users for
years to come, with tools user can enjoy for many years to come.
I'm not surprised at your swift attach, and tacky implications. On the
contrary, i'm only surprised it took you so long. No doubt you'll
continue this as long as it's newsworthy, so.....
