Hey FreeCiv ppl :)

A quick suggestion of a cool visual tool for managing open source projecs, might fit for civ: ( ).


I don't get it. It's not a free tool. Sure there is a free mode for open source, but what if it gets real real popular, every project is depending on it and faciletask changes the terms and open source members now have to pay. I am not implying any malevolence here- businesses change with changing circumstances and no guarantees can be made. They might be saints but could need to change their terms for genuine reasons that it had gotten cash strapped. It may be a great management tool, but unless it is an open source licensed tool, then I don't get how anyone could expect a project to place a dependency on it. Optional is fine with me- I am doing some stuff with Visual Studio. But there can be no dependency- everyone needs to be able to make stuff using free tools. Just my opinion- in case you hadn't already heard it from the open source community. I don't represent the views of anyone on this project, I'm not even a member of it at this time. ~ Phlox 13:50, September 17, 2012 (UTC)
