Re: zim future?


Hi Jaap,

the path you identified for the project makes sense to me. I just wish there was a small team helping you on core restructuring. It would be of great help.

Thank you for your kind and open reply.

Hi Mario, all,

Yes, I think you are right that zim is mostly driven as a one-man
project. However there are multiple contributors who contribute patches
and plugins (quite a lot actually over time but few at the same time).

Therefore for the last years my focus is on making the core code more
robust and push new features to plugins. I hope this will encourage
others to build upon that. Afraid any deadlines I posted for myself on
this have come and gone again - a lot of other stuff happened in my life
over the last few years.

As for this mailing list, I am reading it quite often, but I try to
restrain myself from commenting too often to allow others to join in
instead :)

    Only using zim since 3-4 years, so I can't speak for the past, but for
    some time now I have been under the impression that development
    slowed down.

    If I am not wrong Jaap's last post on this list goes back to Oct 29.
    This is free, open source software, so no complaint, and I know very
    well that life imposes priorities.

    I just wonder how much current development model depends on a single
    person to keep things going..

    Is there anything Python semi-illiterates can do to help?

    Thank you,
