Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

Actually if it works as you say, I might be OK with this. Don't know if the comments will cause problems, but I am going to give it a try. EDIT: I'll try to reestablish probably this PR from GitLab. If this workflow proves it can work, I'd like to update the development documentation to include a tu...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

It's sad scrawl leaves but I admire him for taking the stance. I am going to do the same. I am gone from GitHub. I will only continue to contribute on grounds of a free platform, be it GitLab, a mailing list or anything else.

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

No. The Microsoft of 2018 is not “the definition of proprietary software. AFAIK the main MS product is still a closed OS that's basically malware that forces upgrades to new version and can't do basic things others OSes have been capable of for many years now. With the occasional pieces of software...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

One question - what does MS ownership of GitHub change anything for this project? What would be a reason to do such migration if GitHub still wouldn't be bought by MS? I know that Microsoft did many things in the past, but what changed now? I know, they might do something in the future, but unless ...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

I am transitioning to GitLab today, the platform is actually better, just not as populated. I am seeing a lot of people doing the same, there's a lot of talk about this at Diaspora accompanied by #deleteGitHub hastag. I wonder what's the OpenMW maintaners' stance to this? Is OpenMW going to stay at ...

Re: Artist wants to help the project.

Yes, I'd also love to see you join the example suite project, you'd be helping to create a completely libre game, which many people would thank you for and which would also get the libre game community to embrace OpenMW - currently the libre people often dismiss OpenMW because the content and the sc...

Re: Changelog

To me this seems like a good idea. Yes, raevol can do this, but I think it's better to distribute work that can be distributed rather than leave it all to a single person X, because 1. The project is less dependent on person X. Not that I suspect raevol to quit, but he may for example get busy durin...

Re: It's really important to have graphical parity with MGE.

These are my personal views: and nobody has played that version of Morrowind in over a decade. I have. I didn't even use the unofficial patch or any unofficial mods. I enjoyed it. The project philosophy seems to be that 1.0 should aspire to be a faithful recreation of the vanilla Morrowind engine mi...

Re: Free-licensed game in OpenMW engine?

Don't forget the time and effort put into tracking down the authors of various mods who released their work under CC-BY licenses as a result of OpenMW. https://github.com/OpenMW/UIX-R This is great, thank you! I'd personally prefer to release everything under CC0, just because when you're managing ...
