As a moderator, rather than admin, I don't think I have sufficient abilities to fix the damage that that one caused :shock:

Merged posts from the topic IDG PA28 Development Archive - Closed.

Josh, can I ask the reason you closed this topic? Note that for historical reasons, it is not very nice of you to replace the text of your first posts of all your threads with a '.'. You probably have good reasons (that I guess you wish not to communicate in public) but there will be many FlightGear users now, and in the future, who will look at this and be both saddened and confused. Instead of thinking about the current actions of others and reacting so destructively, you should consider protecting your legacy for decades to come.

Regards,
Edward

I simply removed out of date and irrelevant infos as the old OP post tends to contain.

Also, I really wish you all would stop assuming that I am "thinking about the current actions of others" as that's really a big pile of crap. I make my decisions based on my own thoughts, thank you.

And lastly I do not have a "legacy", what am I a god? Wrong.

Kind Regards,
Josh

I for one would just like to say I have appreciated your input when I have sometimes asked, what must be, simplistic questions to those of you with extensive knowledge.

Of course you make your own decisions. However that does not mean that someone's actions did not influence your decision. Note that since your 'Boom' post, I've had a number of PMs/emails from concerned people. I don't know the full story, but I have been told part of it and been pointed to some outside public information. According to the forum history - this is what FlightGear users will see in the future - in chronological order you:


There are a number of other posts where the content was replaced with "-". This sequence of events seems to fit with the story line that I've been told in private - that there was a falling out within the IDG group, someone forked the GPL content, you were not happy with that, you nuked your GitHub development repositories replacing them with new repositories of the same name with zero developmental history (removing the GPL licence text), you terminated your forum development threads, you updated the wiki articles to reflect the IDG shutdown, and then you dropped this large nuke. I've also been pointed in private to some public posts against the GPL. I have not verified if this sequence of events is true, but this is essentially what I've been told and pointed to.

As for your legacy, you already have one. Everyone has a legacy. In your case, people will admire your aircraft and numerous contributions for decades to come. And you have set a very high bar for the development of airliners that other developers can look up to. That is your legacy to the FlightGear community, now and well into the future. There is a good reason why I pushed for you to obtain full FGAddon commit access. By placing your aircraft there, and you having full control of them, your developments will be available in 20 or more years. Your contributions will move with the FlightGear project and will outlive the future and inevitable eventual shutdown of both GitHub and SourceForge.

Edward

Given that there's a whole group of people involved who also have a stake in the development of the aircraft: If any of the IDG developers feels a need to put whatever was the last GPL-compatible content to FGAddon rather than starting a new 3rd party repository to continue work - I'm ready to assist if help is required. Your call.

It seems , he don't understand the GPL (or at least didn't at the time he has chosen the GPL for his projects).
