Re: What about forking?

Right, that is what happened on a project I decided to help out with. I gave a lot of time to the project and got abused by a bunch of idiots who really did not understand software development.
Finally they booted me off because they just wanted to keep things their way rather than listen to others with more experience. So I forked the project and it is still going after two years and has features that their version does not. So they lost out by being closed. Screw them.
