Howdy pardner...

I'd like to welcome you to this here page o'mine, which has been whipped up in no time flat to give some support and outside discussion to the presently stunned Mambo open source project and community.

Why you say? What the heck is this all about? Well pilgrim, you've found yer way to just the place ya'll need to be to get those queries answered. Sure 'nuff this here place is where we can maybe have a chuckle over what's been goin' down of late, maybe even open some eyes to where this all could be headed.

So kick back in front o' the fire and we'll spin some yarns about what could be the biggest showdown Mambo has ever seen in the ol' west

Thankye kindly fer visitin',

Waddya reckon, pilgrims?

Well, I've waited until ya'll left more than a hundred votes for each poll, now seems like a good enough time to have the lowdown on what ya'll are feelin'.

Now firstly, it's mighty apparent these ol' surveys aint completely serious and put up mostly in the spirit of fun, but the results I'm sure will still be interestin' for some.

Firstly, I asked ya'll:

Do ya trust them varmints at Miro?
Hell no!
98 Votes 78.4%
They could be on the level. 16 Votes 12.8%
Why sure! I love snake oil! 11 Votes 8.8%

Trust at this point in time is an important part of whether the pilgrims are gonna accept the law put down by the new gang in town. That's Miro, if ya'll are doubtful of my meaning.

Out of 125 voters, 98 of you said "Hell no!". Now I'm sure there's been a few of the Miro faithful thru these parts, so that number aint no thing to laugh at. No, seems the actions of Mr. Lamont and co have not garnered much trust at all.

16 of you believe Miro could be on the level, that's mighty generous I'm sure.

Now, funnily enough, eleven trust Miro enthusiastically and what's more they love snake oil. Those would be those faithful Miro supporters my new fangled IP tracker has been tellin' me about...

Do ya reckon Mambo should have a commercial license?
Hell no!
92 Votes 83.64%
Not sure... 11 Votes 10%
Why sure! I love highway robbery! 7 Votes 6.36%

Ok, in my rush to get these gadgets up and workin, the wordin of the polls may not be identical. Give an ol' cowboy a break ;)

This poll was regardin' a comment Mr. Lamont made during the initial community pow-wow about the Foundation, "...to sever ties between Miro and Mambo by providing the foundation with their own unique license which allows them to continue to release Mambo as free software under the GPL." This rightly triggered much concern amongst the community, as it did seem at the time to indicate there was something unique about the Foundation having a GPL license for Mambo. Surely this, and history, could imply Miro would attempt their own seperate license.

Now it would seem that those fears are unfounded. It would seem that way, but who can say what dastardly plans Mr. Lamont and his posse are concocting beneath their layer of hogwash...

To the results:

One hundred and ten of ya'll put your word on this and this poll was more definitive, even amongst the Miro faithful it would seem.

A staggering 92 said "Hell no!" to the thought of there being a commercial Mambo release. I wonder if any of the Miro posse popped in to see that, altho surely it would be obvious to them now they have to be real careful with their propaganda in future.

Eleven were not sure about this question, quite probably due to them only poppin' by to have a chuckle at my bad cowboy rhetoric.

Seven were all for the idea of highway robbery. I reckon they're probably under the employ of the Lamont gang, could be this old cowboy is gettin' paranoid tho. If ya'll voted for the "Why sure!" camp and have no link to Miro and can prove it, leave a comment.

Finally, we mosie on to the last poll...

Who do you support?
The core dev team!
108 Votes 90.76%
Whoever wins! 9 Votes 7.56%
Miro! I love mutiny! 2 Votes 1.68%

This one is surely the most important of the bunch. In these unsure times, who do you in the community support?

Well, this one is quite frankly surprisin'...

Out of one hundred and nineteen votes, one hundred and eight support the core dev team that have split off from Miro. That could be expected, altho it sorta does imply that some who trust Miro still support the core in their action.

Nine of ya'll are just scallywags sittin' on the fence and waitin' to take a side, shame on ya'll!

Only TWO declared that they support Miro due to their love of mutiny. Well, at least they could choose a side and be honest about it. Altho it aint unlikely that those two was donkey votes.

So, there ya go, the voting so far on these quite silly polls. Makes a break from the monotony of reading twenty questions and answers of complete bullshit, no don't it?

Thankye kindly ya'll for stickin to yer guns,

The Lone Mamber
