I was looking on github and 2 of the 3 issues have a fixand one is a minor theme bug. The last one, the Privacy Policy system, seems to be stalled. What seems to be the problem with this one. Is this related to previous legal problems?

No. It's just that what was shipped with 2.0 was apparently not good enough for 2.1.
Please don’t PM me for paid work, I’m not for hire, and even if I was, I doubt you could afford me.

Ok. Then let's hope that the programming problems are solved soon.

I have migrated from 2.0 to 2.1 version (https://huongtinhyeu.net). Most of things are good, thank you very much from Vietnam.

I am waiting for RC3. I hope it will be soon. I also hope that the reason it takes more time is technological and not interrelational. The later is more difficult to solve and influences everything else.

It’s not technical.

Then this is bad news.  :(  I imagine that it is not related to programming and development competence, but is it?

I hate to ask this question, but is there a fire in the house? If so, did we call the firefighters?

The development is still active in our GitHub repository: https://github.com/SimpleMachines/SMF2.1

Active is a big word. The level of activity seems to be real low since May. At least for RC3

Our developers are volunteers as well. Sometimes we just can't pull the time to commit 50-30 commits per week, and that doesn't means it's not active. It is, less than some other periods, but it is.

I know they are volunteers and I know what it is. I have been a volunteer in many organizations.


However, sometime the level of enthusiasm of volunteers is brought down by the "organizational culture", which has an impact on the interactions of the volunteers which in turn affects the  quality and quantity of work accomplished.


Hence, what I am asking when I ask if there is a fire in the house, is if the "organizational culture" is conducive to good interrelations. If they aren't then, maybe firefighters should be called in. If there is no fire, then, that is good new. I will continue to be patient.

Sure it is! As you saw, back in May we had a higher flow of commits in the repo. Nowadays it isn't that high, and the reason is plain and simple: the volunteers don't currently have as much time as they did back in May. We as an organization can't make any changes on each individual's schedule so that that flow gets high again.

We can't release RC3 because it's not ready, because the volunteers didn't find time to dedicate to the pending issues.

Someone who is patient does not ask the same question three different ways in the hopes of getting a different answer.

Well in case you do not realize it, you led me in this direction when you answered the following question: " I also hope that the reason it takes more time is technological and not interrelational. The later is more difficult to solve and influences everything else."


You answered: " it’s not technical".


Had you answered properly... we would not be having this conversation. ;-)

Of course they don't. I know you. I would have drop dead 8)  if you had answered: "That is true. Sorry about that,  I could have been more precise in my answer."

I could have been more precise. Maybe there was a reason why I wasn't, that because of the giant conspiracy I chose not to elaborate on, just for your benefit.

Good. At least we agree on this point. ;)  Have a good day.
