[App_rpt-users] Regarding Forum environment and Allstarlink development

  I don't know what cluster fudge you are referring to. The people doing 
the development are communicating. Users are getting their questions 
answered. AllStar is not disappearing. I don't know who decided "not to 
press on" I don't know what help you want from the current developers. 
If you are going to learn to code, go for it. Download the source. If 
you have questions about the code, Just ask.

  You seem to think app_rpt HAS to move to a newer version of Asterisk. 
Maybe it does. Maybe it needs to be re-thought. Or just maybe it's 
working quite well. Over the last year, AllStar has moved to a current 
supported Linux distribution. It is now on multiple hardware platforms. 
New drivers are being deployed. New hardware is being supported. New 
gateways are being designed and built.

A lot of us have spent time and energy to document the existing programs 
and configurations.  Your complaint with the "old school mail list" is 
that there are no attachments. Maybe the place we discuss is not the 
place for the files. GIT and SVN do a great job of version control and 
collaboration. Videos are fine to show something to a new user but it 
does nothing to convey the hard information they need to edit 
configurations and get a feature going. I sure don't learn from a shaky 
camera and someone droning on for 15 minutes to find out they never 
cover my question. Building multiple places to discuss a project does 
not help move anything forward. It just make it harder to find a answer. 
If you need a ego boost by starting a forum, fine. More power to you.

Anytime someone disagrees, you are "stepping on toes" I'm here to tell 
you, you are not stepping on toes. You spout words that sound good but 
you don't know what it takes to do something.

I wish you well in your efforts. I hope I did not step on your toes.

I'm sure some people will disagree with parts or all of what I have to 
say. This is just how I feel.

73, Steve N4IRS
