Petr, I don't agree with this attack. It is true that his site hasn't been
update since a couple of years and this does not help the end user into
approaching Glayout but I read this mailin list from a lot of time and Maxim
is one of the senior contributor of the community. I consider him one of the
Gurus of Rebol.
I write here the same example I have written in AltMe: we have 2 sinkink
ships (Both are the Rebol Project) in the first one people fight each other,
in the second people cooperate. Which ship do you think will survive ?
I suppose that Max has a personal time problem and he can't update his
website and documentation but he has written "I will support you" and this
is enough. If we want survive as group we must try to help him. Why don't we
create a wikibook project to update the Glayout and the documentation ? This
is the cooperation I am writing of.

Max Delivers and R3 is 1,5 years far from going out of beta. Too much for me
to stay without a professional GUI system. I don't wont to loose such a good
community programmer before R3 is ready. I want him on the ship (and I think
the others and Carl itself as he has shown great apreciation at Devcon 2007
torwards Max and Glayout; you can read this on the devcon 2007 report)
