nothing is changed, everyone has access to the same materials, and
now, superior tools. there is no foul play or malicious activity,
despite claims otherwise. all transactions are legitimate and
supported by those involved.
i have retired Luke of the management duties, particularly, *above*
the source, ie. the professional presentation and image of the
project, nothing more. it undermines nothing. everyone is free to
continue, for the most part, business as usual ... including Luke.
ironically, this resolution was SPECIFICALLY CHOSEN because it was
believe to have the highest probability of keep an already small
community intact, AND retaining Luke. it was not decided lightly or
whimsically, and whether to fork or travel this path was up in the air
for some time. i purchased `uxpy.net` and `uxpy.co` for this exact
reason. however a very prominent member of the community persuaded me
that despite the initial shock, this would be the better path.
i agreed, and still do. anyone who wishes can make their support
known, should they choose to do so, themselves. the domain
transaction was performed in good faith, as a means of returning the
project to the community, and in full support of the previous holder.
in short, i entered negotiations with Erik directly; i did not need to
consult Luke, nor would that have be productive. Erik was already
aware of the problems i cited; he may elaborate his own decision
further, himself, should he choose to do so.
the hosting has changed in a way that will allow the project to grow
professionally, and accept perfectly reasonable suggestions from the
community. i've given two presentations on pyjs in a professional
setting, and BOTH times the first questions and comments were NOT
about pyjs. i'll let you fill in the gaps.
alas, there is no need for apologies, from anyone. for all intents and
purposes Luke and everyone else is free to make similar decisions with
regards to the codebase. the collective desire was to retain Luke as
a developer. it should be noted that a fork was the original route,
an opportunity presented itself, and i ran with it.
the ideal result was an intact community, with the ability to do
what's best for the PROJECT and COMMUNITY, where other considerations
and ideals, personal or otherwise, are secondary at best.
nothing was remove from Luke's server, and no attempt was made to
"cover up". in fact, all data was pulled from publicly exposed
regarding the .bash_history ... please see:
... and ...
... that file will DETAIL me asking permission before i set it up.
it's a self-hosted get repository of my own design. have fun with it.
the pygit browser is a toy -- use Github's browser. the wiki was
literally injected AS-IS (Github supports 7+ formats) into the Github
repo, then merged with new documents. the other repos are unrelated
to pyjs, and Luke are free to do what you wish with them; i have
neither removed nor altered anything on his server.
Luke, i would recommend you terminate thought paths regarding criminal
activity. everything in use is public knowledge or assets; i'm afraid
you can't encourage and promote a public portal, then criminalize it's
use. i do not even have the gitolite database, nor any other
non-public data. please don't make me further intervene or forcibly
terminate additional threats or remarks. there is no case to be had,
and the domain was not hijacked. quite frankly, the domain was
hijacked when the one maintaining it blatantly disregarded the
community preferences thereto.
nothing has been vandalised. all comments regarding theft, stealing,
hijacking, or any other allusion to a crime are unfounded and do not
reflect reality. i have legitimately acquired the domain, with the
full consent of it's previous owner, and that's all there is to it.
please, let's move into more productive areas of discussion.
the examples and archives will be fixed soon enough.
declaring pyjs as dead, and claiming defacement/hijacking is nonsense.
please do not disrespect me or the work performed in achieving this.
the website WILL be replaced, rather soon, but it's use is acceptable,
and governed by it's associated license.
this is the path forward; make good of the newfound power.
