"works just fine" with regard to what goal or route/ plan? Are there already noticable improvements of non volatile nature? Do we keep enough newbies to have lasting growth? (I'm sorry for being unaware, I was pretty busy the past month(s). Until recently I just learned a little from netrek-dev, and I didn't notice there any success reports beyond "hey, a full server" once in a long while.) Remember, in the other thread you said you need some more resources. Has this changed or will it change on its own? In the past one problem was that people weren't busy with netrek so it dropped in the background left alone on its own. Talking about it brings attention, ideas, and maybe enough momentum to produce participation. Having clearly defined organisation + roles (with responsibilities) and people filling them can mean more commitment and therefore output. Some people need that, they don't get moving on their own, they need external "push" signals as reminders for their own interest. Others don't like being pressed to live up to own promises or committing oneself in the 1st place, but then there is no point in coordination to achieve "fast" results to catch the hype of a new mac client, which was the original reason to call for changes (yours and mine). If the existing setup had been attractive enough, then people would already have contributed by now what we still miss. -- © Rado S. -- You must provide YOUR effort for your goal!
