QuotePersonally, I get confused with github so I can't comment on the posts there, except when people have specifically linked me.
QuoteYeah,there are always problems with communication... Less with mudslinging, IMO. One of the things I am trying to work on for the next three months is improving the communication so the next pm to take over can have a smoother transition and a better motivated team.
QuoteThanks for starting this topic--as a very wet-behind-the-ears newbie, it's answered a lot of the questions I've had these past few days since joining the forum and installing 2.0.5 in my own little realm.
QuoteIs it safe to assume it was tested to at least some degree using that version?

QuoteI'd start 3.0 development on top of 2.1 while 2.1 is going through late beta/RC stages and use 2.1's build as basis.
QuoteWait, so a full year ago it was basically ready to go?
QuoteActually 6 months after that post everything was already ready (well, a new theme WIP came in because "SMF cannot be released without a new theme").I tried to push a release twice, but my conditions (like have it live here) for it were never met, so now it's up to Oldiesmann. He mentioned it twice recently, so I suppose he wants to have a release.
Quoteand the kool-aid is tasty
Quotelots of items in the first post
QuoteGithub is very confusing, even to a seasoned developer, but maybe I'm doing it wrong.
