Serhiy Brytskyy Taking Over From Henrik Lynggaard as MozillaTranslator Project Lead
Tuesday April 6th, 2004By Henrik Lynggaard
I know it has been ages since I have been active on MozillaTranslator,and for that there is various reasons. I could go into the reasons, but it will suffice to say that I realized I no longer have the time to actively maintain MozillaTranslator.
But this is not a announcement that MozillaTranslator will die! This announcement is here to say that MozillaTranslator is alive and being developed on. It is however not mainly by me anymore. As of today, I have stepped down as project lead, so that more active people can keep this project alive. Since MT is my first open source project I'm not sure on what the correct procedures are in a case like this (even though I read ESR book), so I have just decided to do things my way.
I have talked it over with Serhiy Brytskyy who is one of my regular contributer, and one of the few who had write access to the code. He has agreed to take over as project lead and as such he is the one that patches should be submitted to etc. Along with the change in leadership there is also other ideas for changes.
If this is not the right way, and there are other people who strongly believe they would be better leaders of the project, both I and Serhiy is open to reasonable arguments.
So what does this mean in practice
If we go by that idea there isn't much left of the original site and it might be best to move the download and documentation of the program to either mozilla.org or SourceForge.
Any comments on these ideas are greatly welcomed, please post them in the n.p.m.l10n newsgroup for all to enjoy.
I think this has covered most of it, comment, thoughts, questions, please place them in the newsgroup n.p.m.l10n.
