Re: pilot-link.org: Anonymous CVS Removed indefinitely



So they expect you to package the obsolete September 2003 release? 0.12.x is 
now in "prerelease" state since January 2005 (!), when are they going to allow 
you to package it? Time for a fork? 
 
The maintainer himself says: "After almost 16 months of waiting, the first new 
version of pilot-link is now available for testing. The last version of 
pilot-link, 0.11.8, was released back in September of 2003. Its been a long 
time coming!", "The commandline tools are much more stable, the main library 
now supports many more devices and platforms, and code has been refactored and 
cleaned up in a LOT of places, and MANY other things have been added or 
removed." and "Many of us are already using 0.12.0-pre1 daily for our 
production use. It is very stable, and works well for most current devices that 
we’ve had the time and resources to test", which IMHO is reason enough to use 
the new code despite his "big fat warning". As for GUI tools not being 
compatible with the new code yet, how does he expect them to become compatible 
if they can't access the new code?
