I'd rather have one project. But I'd rather have two projects, one forking off the other, if the original goes stagnant.

Mick seems to own the server and nobody else seems to have commit access to it, as all of the commits are from him.

I haven't been involved with kismac for a long time*, Mick's busy but he's the head hauncho last I checked. I was assuming other people were brought in to help. That being said, why not bring other people in to help? If there's a server (Doesn't Mick have one, what do we use now?) and an admin for the svn/trac then why not? I'd much rather have one project then fork out and have a few.

Yeah, I have tried to contact him too on a few occasions, he said that he'd try to include my patches in the next version (r76 as r75 was the one out at the time), it didn't happen.

nothing spectacular speed wise. Also just a thought, I'd wait to hear
from Mick and get his thoughts on forking etc. It might just be

maybe adding trac. Adding admins to a project is a lot less work than

The trouble is that trac requires a server. At the moment, gm2.ath.cx

needing it, but we can use it just to provide downloads etc if need

Subversion is only available to some projects in a beta test, but
IME, subversion has no real differences from CVS in actual practice.
Some time around February is the planned release date for giving SVN
to everyone. That's not too far away.

Anyone want to be a project admin and help set things up?

We could swap to another hoster later... if there are problems.
another thing we should definitly look at is the so called "trac
it's much better than the default sourceforge thing.

here you can see it in action:
trac.adiumx.com (adiumx is an osx instant messager probably all of you
know) ;-)

This is really cool, but I don't know if they offer svn to every
project yet or if it's still in trial. Just look out for it.

I'm signing up a project page on sourceforge now. Do you want to be
an admin on the project too? Sign up at http://sf.net and tell me
your username.

Does anyone else think we should/shouldn't?

If we do want to fork off KisMac, we sould change the project

KisMac seemed to be non open-source in the early days before

The SVN release seems to be named KisMacNG (NG standing for next

How about calling the release "KisMacTG" as in third generation?

What about setting up a new SVN server + bugtracker etc?
this is a very nice system:

the adiumx guys use it, too.
