Re: mc^2 news (august 2016)

Hi guys

I am risking of being accused in hipster-thinking... :)
I know there were discussions of that some day. 
It looks there exist developers and quite a lot of users. Something else is missing.
But why not try some form of crowd-funding / bounty-hunting?

I mean to structure those 500+ bugs/features ("future" milestone) in some meaningful way + put some 
estimates(weeks, dollars)/difficulty for them and try to pursue people on popular Linux forums for support.

 I very much hope so.

 It amazes me that the Linux ecosystem (and similar OSs), under which

 Perhaps people just aren't aware of the situation. Before I came here
 I assumed there was some "Bilderberg group" behind MC. After all, MC

 Yep, I've noticed your resounding absence :-( I'm relieved to see
 you're still an addict.

 I too have been inactive. It started with a computer crash that kept
 me busy for a couple of months, and afterwards I sort of remained
 inactive. Not that I've been active before that.

  In the mean time, kudos to Andrew who is single-handedly
  doing some excellent work on mc right now...

 Right! He's like Atlas. I mean it.

 I swear, when that $75 million USD finally get to me from that
 Nigerian prince whose rich uncle Absalom had died, the very first
 thing I'm going to do is put Andrew and you on a huuuuge payroll. For
 Andrew I'll buy a gold Lamborghini. Even before I buy myself a
 mc-devel mailing list
