It is OK to ask first before doing. That is community behaviour. In ADempiere project today we see unilateral decisions made without asking, or they must have asked in hiding robbing the bulk of the community to have a say. This is no longer a community project. It has become someone's private project and it is to make more money from public work. This is truly Animal Farm, even more evil than the Uncle Jones of Compiere.
Carlos lashed out again today in SourceForge forum
such a simple but inconsiderate act by a certain individual within but i will consider he is without the community.
The ADempiere project is no longer my or your as in our collective project. It is a personal project of someone who can dictate what he likes (which is his private profit-taking business) as most URLs he control under the pretext of society now points to one domain which prominently advertise his company name.
Now do you understand why we refused to surrender the domains to such a person in the first place? We wish to surrender to real trustees or spread it out so that there is check and balance and no complicity of a sell-out in the dark. At the moment one URL held in Malaysia and the other in Colombia right across the other side of me is the best or at least better than the above.
Remember late last year, during the 'war' that person now in charge wrote to me complaining that our war made him lost business! I got very puzzled but upset at such a selfish and truly surreal statement. Is he not aware what this project is all about? Is it a slave-boat that earns him alone money? What is such a person doing here? And why does he not step down? Why are good nominated citizens not accepted but given a long list of procedures and duties before they can be admitted? Why are bad citizens still retained? Are they sincere in allowing the August Elections to be fair and free? I do not think so.
But then this is just my opinion. I hope all this is are just honest mistakes. But such mistakes will cost trust and good contributors from staying there. No one wants to work for you or me for free. We want to work for everyone, ourselves included. That is the driving motivation behind the bazaar. That is why you see the top contributors and global country representatives leaving.
One day i will return to fight them in an open court in Europe. I have no idea if the courts can understand our global project but i will not allow the community project to die without a fight. I hope you are with me. But i do not mind to do it alone. I have traveled the world and meet diverse parts of our project that do not even speak a word of English. Their spirit is the community and selfless sharing. That is our language.
