Hi, ok, here is my (longer) answer:
I hired Cyphre to develop some styles and dialects on a contract base.
Together we developed a data-form dialect that makes live very easy WRT
simple database related Reblet programming. Further we have designed
some VID styles especially advanced list-style. BTW: Cyphre did/does a
very good job on this. As my Reblets are IOS related a simple to use
data-sync dialect was developed as well.
I plan to continue working on this approach and extend it to optimize my
Reblet development approach. I further plan to enhance IOS with a lot of
other nice Reblets.
Anyway, I'm open to contribute those things done so far to the community
in a controled way. As I said more than once, I think fragmentation is
our biggest problem. We have a lot of pieces but not one thing to
concentrate on. That's OK for a lot of you, but I'm concentrating to
create a base, where I (and others) can make a business from.
My interest is to keep this development process under control. The
easiest thing to achieve this is to pay people. Well, up to some level I
can do this, and I'm doing it. I know that I could be faster with help
from more people. I have a goal and a vision where to go to with Rebol's
technology and how to make a business out of it.
My idea is, to find futher people that share this goal/vision (or at
least can accept to follow in this direction) that want to contribute to
this base. In return everyone participating and contributing can use the
results as they like.
I have no interest in a never ending community process WRT the stuff I
need. It's just to time consuming. Don't take me wrong here: I highly
appreciate the community and what is done so far. Very good stuff! But
to make a business I need to focus on things.
If you want, ask Cyphre about the way we work together. IMO this is a
very good and open way to do it. He is superb in Rebol development, I
think, that I have a good feeling what is needed and how it should be
used later. Doing a little brainstorming together with Cyphre we find a
solution that really cute within a very short time. That's the way I
would like to work together with a few more people.
I don't have a problem to pay for the stuff I need. It than will take
longer but at the end of the day I'm sure I have a good base for Rebol
business. This base can be used by others as well to make a business
from it. I don't care much about licensing etc. because this makes live
much to complicated. If you can make a fortune out of it, well do it.
What I care about is to keep the development on track and on goal.
That's what my interst is because I think, if someone is controling this
all the others will profit as well. If you can live with some rules and
want to contribute let me know. Robert
