Here, here. Give them their dues, they're the only SMF fork that's still active (correct me if I'm wrong, anyone?) and they always had the biggest goal in mind; going *far* beyond the code they started with, not just some little incremental change. That's why they started earliest, and why they're still working towards the goal of a public demo/release.
Comments like "I can see how people lose hope" are passive-aggressive insults. They're not helpful comments.
Time be time... like an Exchange DB Defrag, they'll be done when they're done and not an attosecond sooner.

So, you don't mind probing questions, eh, Pete? On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is "not a chance" and 10 is "give me a few seconds to make the zip", how far along do you consider the project to be? :niark:

No R-G, wasn't for you...
You talkin' to me? I'm... not... Pete.
I'm the French one. Y'know, the b'stard.
On the one hand, there's asking how much is done, how much we think we have to do. This I don't mind, I'll be honest about these things and it doesn't annoy me, because it's a question that has no loading to it. The reason I don't mind is because it's respectful.
Easiest thing is always "Ne nourrissez pas les trolls". If you set yourselves deadlines (realistic or otherwise) and don't meet them (for whatever reason), the trolls will get shouty and that just makes things worse, because they have to be dealt with. If the demo is out today/tomorrow/next week, so be it.
