Re: Strategy regarding pantheon-files


As you and I heard from Xapantu the other day, he does not have the time to
maintain upstream compatibility. He was the only one interested/investing
in the relationship. Our only option now is to break the relationship and
do what we have to to produce the best project we can.

Thanks for bring this up.
