Re: The future of SIELibre and SchoolTool


Hi David,

We are in the same situation. I am not a Zope developer. I have basic
programming skills, though not enough to lead a project like SchoolTool.
We installed SchoolTool at our K-8 school, and I was hoping to deploy it
with the "next big release", which of course hasn't happened.

I really like SchoolTool and I'd like it to continue. Personally I am
more comfortable with git/Github than bzr/Launchpad. My idea is that a
Github migration would expose the codebase to more Python/Zope
developers and raise awareness of the opportunities.
