The following issues still remain outstanding:
- Why over 6 months worth of news and copy Absalom Media has generated regarding tutorials, reviews, coding and support has disappeared from the project. The last news I posted was on 1st of December 2005, the last date now listed is back in July 2005. The copyright for the news I generate remains to me.
- Why Mambo Communities, the company set up and run by Peter Lamont, isn't held to account to the Mambo Foundation for provisioning of service and recognition that the open source/GPL work hosted there still remains copy of the developers who host on the Forge.
- Why Mamboforge is currently blacklisting some of the networks I use
- Why Martin Brampton, currently one of the members of the Mambo Foundation Board, cannot guarantee that any open source developer is welcome on the Forge, even though the Foundation has publically stated:
You don't have to be a member of the foundation to develop plugins or templates or to have a project on Mamboforge.
This poses an interesting dilemma for the Foundation at this time. The Mambo Foundation claims to be caring about an open source future for Mambo yet it cannot even guarantee that open source developers who support Mambo through the GPL and other open source licences are welcome.
I again publically ask for a quick resolution to this dilemma, as the message that is currently being sent out of the Foundation is that it cannot even guarantee control over it's own code, let alone the safety of those open source third party developers due to an unaccountable company holding control over all Mambo-related assets (The Forge, domain names, servers, CVS access).
Absalom Media is currently finalising the next revisions of the Mambo 4.0.14 template pool and as we maintain the copyright over the current editions of work, it would be understandable that they be hosted on the official open source Mambo development area.
