Well, I still see some potential in 1.3 and I would like to use it. But
Jason is right, we have to get serious with GL2 development. So I think
we could do one more major release (1.3.8) to lay a basis for further
(minor) improvements but in such a way that we could halt 1.3 development
at any stage and put it into maintenance mode (bugfixes only).

That would be when GL2 development has come to the point where the
development of the actual modules can start. We would have a phase then
where no actual progress (in terms of releases) would be seen for some
time, but with our active community I don't see this as a problem.
Development of plugins and other addons can still continue through that phase.

Hmm, I seem to have a deja vue here - haven't we been through this before?

>2) Name change?

I guess the problem with the name is restricted to the English-speaking
world? A German company, specialising in providing (web) content for the
bakery industry, has recently switched to Geeklog (from some unnamed
Windows-based CMS that they weren't particularly happy with) and they had
no problem mentioning the name in the newsletter to their customers ...

But I guess it would be okay to use a new name for the "commercial"
(can't think of a better word right now) version if that helps in some

bye, Dirk
