Funny. I just googled for the "news" and ran across the Reddit discussion.
OMG. Sheesh there was a lot of discussion there.
I was trying to do a good thing; instead I got pounded for it. Frankly the
negativism that accompanies most OSS projects makes me wonder why we do this at
all. After all it is always easier to gripe about who some program is crapware
than to do anything constructive. FOSS maintainership is a thankless job. The
CoC debacle just underscored that for me.
As to being bribed to come back - while nothing is impossible - it seems
unlikely to me. The nanomsg code base is pretty unfun for me to work on and it
would take a lot to get me interested in it again. The lack of sufficient
interested contributors has meant I had to carry too much of this beast - not
my baby - on my own shoulders. The thankless nature and sense of inherited
responsibility didn't make it more fun.
My decision to step down may have been rashly made, but I think it was the
My Github commits may have been down of late, but my quality of life has been
As to questions raised technically.
Sub sockets don't hang. Frankly even your pyzmq results seem suspect to me
although I don't use zmq anymore.
Mangos will for the time being attempt to remain compatible with nanomsg. If
nobody picks up nanomsg I may drive forward with mangos in the future. We shall
As to security mangos supports TLS today. Doing so with zmq is possible but a
lot of work because the design isn't terribly friendly for OpenSSLs
abstractions. I'd planned to do so anyway at some point but never found the
Using curve crypto looks interesting but again someone else would need to drive
it forward. I've got no time and TLS in mangos meets my needs. :-)

what it's worth, this community is not as bad as the newsfeeds make it out to
be. I think Garrett should be bribed to step back in - while you guys make up
your mind (just random 2 cents), while CoC should be implemented - and
perhaps C4 as well.
So does nanomsg SUB socket also hang after a while randomly? (my zeromq sub
recv stops after 254 messages in pyzmq...)
Mangos looks good - but how will it develop in the future? Will it follow
nanomsg or the other way around?
Also, you guys have better support for erlang, which seems to be pretty dead
How about security? Anything similar to curvezmq? Because that thing is
