I think what you're missing in all this, Steve, is that my comments
are not really directed at the decision to migrate hibernate.org
There were considerations affecting that decision that simply don't
apply to seamframework.org
. And, well, it's done now, so
recriminations don't really serve much purpose.
Yes, I do think that the migration was badly executed (and I'm sorry
you're offended by that), but I would not be pressing the point or
even mentioning it here, were it not for the fact that there are
several people who are arguing that we should do the same thing to
. And they've been claiming, in the face of my
skepticism, that this could certainly be done without losing the
identity, look and feel, and general usability of the current site.
Essentially, they've tried to tell me that there would be no downside
to this migration. Which is a load of bull, frankly.
I'm picking on hibernate.org
, not because I want to start a useless
fight with the folks who worked on that migration, but because it is
concrete proof of some of the points I've been making with respect to
, that have been dismissed by others.

Is the new site "perfect"? No of course not.
However, I invited the needed people to review it and none did. I cannot
jump through the internet and make people care man. I will say that
launching was a great way to get people to care, huh?
But to claim that it should not have been moved to what you call a shit
platform is retarded imo because it is moving from a shit platform. And
even worse, at the time the old site was a shit platform that crashed
regularly (we are required to have a total ghetto script in the background
that monitors the site and if it becomes unresponsive restart the sevices).
is having problems too ever since the move, but in
my defense they did not have the history of these issues prior to the move
that the old hibernate.org
The only real question here is whether moving to seam based solution would
have been "better". Well lets see... Who would have done this migration?
You and I and Christian and other folks sat in coffee shop in Atlanta
nearly 3 years ago and talked about moving hibernate.org
3 years! So obviously this was not a priority. For me to do it (which you
must admit is how this played out) I had to decide between having help (from
the jboss community team) or doing it all myself (apparently) to migrate it
to this esoteric seam based site. I don't have the time. Period.
