Hi Narayan,

Of course, I am not suggesting that users should be forced to use a
tool that does not fit their needs.

a small difference here, it's not users but contributors, just a small

I disagree, we should not be catering to contributors, but all users.
The OOo contribution community has been too small for too long. If we
really do want to succeed we need to see all users as potential
contributors and provide equal access and respect.

So it will be the end of the topic for me because you don't want to understand: how will you recruit the hundred of contributors currently taking care of the forums if they don't want to be force to use Drupal? Will you tell them that you don't care about them, as you're don't care about what I try to explain to you since weeks ?

It started when I wanted to know if Drupal is going to be adopted. I
never got my answer.

I give one and ask some questions, may be you don't read it or do not want
to answer. And seems I'm still an SC member ;-)

It is a shame that there are some in the community who did not listen
to, or misinterpreted the SC decision statement, isn't it.

Yes, shame on me, you're right. My decision is to go for Drupal where needed and to respect the community decision if they don't want to use Drupal as a 'all in one tool' because they are already doing a great work with another tool and want to stay with it. Period. So you can blame me, but I won't move from this position to battle for the respect of the community. And again a tool if far from a community in my eyes.

The official SC decision statement made it clear that Drupal will
replace Silverstripe when it is considered ready.

A concept map (or an argument map) are the best tool for conceptual
discussion. Both can be collaboratively plotted in Drupal.

I'm use to conceptual map on papers, sorry not easy to put on Drupal I fear
;-), but yes I work quite often with them, useful tool, that's true.

It is actually quite easy with the Graphmind Drupal module

just that you need an access to the web, that was what I mean. Not everybody has a web access.

So as said at the beginning of this mail, end of topic for me.

Kind regards
