Hi, I just want to ask a question about something that I don't understand since a long time now. We have make-doc from RT, we have ML from Andrew, we have make-doc from Chris and finally we have make-doc-pro done by me. This doesn't look like a good product management to me. I might be wrong, but why do we have so many forked projects? What's the benefit of this? I tried to get make-doc-pro to RT nad indicated that I'm willing to tweak to fit their needs. I'm open to new ideas for make-doc-pro, I look forward if others want to jump in and help developing it... One main problem I see in the Rebol community (which I have said several times already) is fragmentation of everything. Docs are fragmented, discussion is fragmented (ML, IOS servers, AltME worlds, you name it), projects with the same goal (or a near-the-same-goal) are fragmented, etc. The success-factor of other open-source projects is that those projects make it to fokus mutually on one goal and share the same vision. This doesn't mean we need to move forward all the same but to spend our energy to find synergy. Petr, please just let's move in small steps and small visions because I know that you see this problem in even more global aspects ;-)). But we didn't made it in the small yet... Anyway, I'm just wondering. Robert
