His grumbling doesn't affect anything.Indeed. That, however, doesn't mean I can't snark a little. I mean, the OpenID bug that was all of a sudden a stopper had been present for many many months. It's interesting that it was so suddenly considered a blocker to 2.0 rather than a major or medium-priority bug for a 2.0.1 release. I mean, that's happened in the past. You're not going to get any kind of complex software completely bug-free. Instead of delaying until it's "prefect", just release once all the crucial things (data loss bugs, for instance) are done and make a few bugfix updates later.It's been how long since the NPO has fully owned the software? I recall when the public was being told that the transfer was the only thing holding up the release and pointing fingers about signatures and other stuff. I also recall a few of the developers simply stopping coding because they didn't want to work on a project that might become "dead". (not sure if that exact word was used, but that was implied for sure...)Why not just have gone for the truth with a simple "We're not quite comfortable releasing it in the current state" rather than blaming outside forces? I guess that wouldn't go because then the current team would have had to take responsibility for any further delays instead of conveniently blaming the problem-du-jour.I am very glad to see the current team start owning up to some of the delay that has occurred now that there is nobody/nothing to blame, I just wish that had started sooner as owning the problem leads to action to resolve it (for better or worse).
