Re: Article about Midnight Commander on

Yes, I was looking for more than superficial feedback - so thank you. And perhaps the publicity will attract some developers.

My personal opinion, generic as it is because I have been here only a couple weeks, is that someone who has been here for a while should step into the lead role. I am willing to assist by learning more about the code. Based on the recent posts to this list, it seems that someone who can create a defined process would be desirable.

Just my 2 cents worth.

I like Midnight Commander very much. And I have authored several

for several weeks - long before the current developers announced that
they would be retiring from the project - is about Midnight
Commander. Please check it out.
That looks very nice, and thanks for these efforts - I'd say that's the
area to which few other folks pay attention to, so it's really helpful
to know that some people don't just think what will happen when current
generation of mc user will die off, but actually try to make sure that
new users get acquainted with it.

If you want feedback beyond "it's cool!", I'd say that you should use
default mc theme for screenshots (to give least surprise to users who
actually will try it out). Or perhaps have a screenshot with a default
theme and your custom theme and then mention in the text that mc is
configurable down to the level of theme and colors.
