This was a stupid decision made by bureaucrats. The project still has 
potential and the lack of vision and belief from the "board" that those 
interested could actually achieve it - it's flat out disappointing. 
What's it "cost" the board to actually let it have another chance? There 
are other passionate people like myself who use the software everyday.. 
It's a silent community... This decision came from those who had some 
issue with the project for a long time and wouldn't stop until they had 
their way... I may be wrong and apologies if I am, but the behind the 
scenes information I have points in one direction only.
