News » 24.03.2011 - Team changes

Hello dear Denora users,

time goes by and things change. I joined the Denora team back in 2005, after Denora version 1.1 was released. In 2006 or 2007, I don't really remember, I took over as project leader and have been responsible for all Denora 1.4.x releases so far.

Lately though, my life has been getting busier and busier, thus having very little time to devote to open source projects. My lack of time is just slowing things down for Denora, and it's not going to get any better any time soon, which is why I decided it is time for me to hand over the Denora project to someone else.

DukePyrolator is the new project leader. He is a skilled C coder and has been already a Denora coder from 2005 to 2006, putting in place its chanstats system. He is also involved in the Anope project, with whom we are aggregated. So he is familiar with the code. And since he offered to take over, I immediately said yes.

I know Denora is in the right hands now and I wish DP and the team all the best. I will continue to be in the team as contributing developer, at least for now.

As far as the phpDenora goes, my current plan is to put together a version 2 based on the upcoming magirc project as soon as possible, since version 1 needs to die. When I feel it is mature enough I will hand over the project as well.
