The Pub / A question......
« on April 12th, 2011, 09:41 AM »
So, after running my forum for getting on for 12 years, (it started on Wildcat!, then YaBB and has progressed through to SMF 2), I have now closed it, much to the displeasure of my members!

I just got so sick and tired; so sick and tired of all the bitching that has gone on at sm.org over the years. Waiting, (years!), for them to be innovative, to release a product that stood out, miles over all the competition, alas it was not to be. Until Arantor and Nao got together months ago to begin work on Wedge. What a breath of fresh air!

I have been following it's progress, as far as public viewing goes, on arantor.org, noisen.com, bryandeakin.com etc., since it's inception and can honestly say I am REALLY looking forward to its release!

I do intend starting a totally new forum and this forum will be with Wedge.

I have a question though.

I know Wedge cannot be released until SMF becomes an NPO and they release their 'Gold' version, but I have limited knowledge of the licensing issues etc.

So my question is this: During the transfer of SMF to an NPO, which seems to be taking an eternity, and the change of licence making it 'forkable', what is to stop them making further changes to the licence at changeover which would prevent it being forked?? (I really don't trust them!) What would happen to Wedge then??

As I said, my knowledge of licensing is limited so the above question(s) may be total bullshit and make me look a complete wanker!

It may also have been answered somewhere before, but I'm buggered if I can find it! I go to bed at night, wake up in the morning, and there have been a gazzilion posts to catch up on! (and that's just Arantor! ;) )

Ok, that's it.

As an aside, Nao, I have to commend you on your command of the English language, for a Frenchman, you put many of the English speakers postings on sm.org and elsewhere to shame!

Well done both, thanks and keep up the good work!
