Oh, ImpressCMS that was forked from XOOPS became available. The biggest feature of Impress CMS is that developers write programs. Any abilities for action are a nice. They changed their wish to their result. Cool!
And, it seems that ImpressCMS is not controled under the foundation. Very good. The XOOPS foundation released a long long announce. Meanwhile, the ImpressCMS released a software. 😉
Like Cube became warfare in the XOOPS community, ImpressCMS became a problem. Someone said that is a political fight. But I imagine that ImpressCMS developers got angry in the foundation that doesn’t try to perform XOOPS development. XOOPS is freedom software, so it’s correct that they chose to develop themselves.
I like anarchy, so I think the biggest miss of XOOPS is the XOOPS foundation. I don’t know what the foundation has been useful for. The current ImpressCMS is a kind of distribution. They had to fork, to only release such a package. In XOOPS Cube case, they don’t need to fork, because XOOPS Cube recommends actual actions.
Some people say that “an organization” is useful. But I don’t think so. XOOPS is a volunteer activity by citizens. Too short free time of citizens should not be used for organization game.
Some people think that the organization collecting people is able to do something. But, even if many people gather, unactive people do nothing.
