--LOOKING FOR HELP MAINTAINING THIS PROJECT-- #1881
I've been maintaining and evolving Fine Uploader faithfully on an almost daily basis since mid-2012. But I no longer rely on Fine Uploader myself, and have lost the motivation and time to continue supporting and evolving this library.
Fine Uploader has a large user base, and many projects built on top of it, including React Fine Uploader. I'm looking for a new dedicated maintainer to continue to support and evolve Fine Uploader and its related projects. I have a lot of big plans for the project, but I feel the time has come to pass the torch on to someone else. Please respond here if you are interested.
Hi Ray, I'm Steph, the CTO at MASV.io (LiveQoS Inc.) based in Ottawa, Canada.
MASV.io is a new SaaS offering that caters to the Media & Entertainment, massive file transfer vertical.
Timing is everything! I'm in the midst of planning next 6-12 months which includes major features for our Rush web uploader, as well as MASV REST API, and was considering flipping over from our in-house uploader to FineUploader.
I have a small team of developers, skin in the game, and an interest in monetizing usage of our cloud, but not the tools that promote such usage.
Would you consider someone from or team to maintain it? I can offer you an assurance that we'll have the community's interest in mind and keep your baby alive.
Would be great to speak to you actually, I'd like to know more about you and see if we have any common interests. I can also share with you my vision of MASV and how FU would benefit. Regardless, I would really like to hear your vision for FineUploader and know what you wish you had time to do. Do you have time for a call next week Wed-Fri?
Thanks for your time,
I am Ángel.
I'm 32 years old and have been developing webs, apps, UI and so on since I was a kid. always supporting open source software.
I'd love to participate and keep Fine Uploader alive. We can have a skype meeting if you like, I live in Madrid.
Thanks for your job during all this years,
PS: Leave you my personal e-mail email@example.com
I am Martin. We are a small team based in Austria developing a Plattform where file upload is an essential part. So we have an interest in having a properly maintained library we can build upon. I can picture us becoming maintainer of the FineUploader project.
Let me know about your plans. I dropped you a message in Skype.
I did send you an invitation to your Skype account, though.…

Hi, I think this is you ;-) I hardly use Twitter but I will dig out my account for you…

I can see your pain. Would have loved to see it otherwise. Alas, we have postponed our switch to fineuploader. Other stuff got higher priority. Maybe next year. Am 31. Dez. 2017 05:26, um 05:26, Ray Nicholus <firstname.lastname@example.org> schrieb:…
Well, finding a suitable maintainer has been far more difficult than I anticipated. -- You are receiving this because you were mentioned. Reply to this email directly or view it on GitHub: #1881 (comment)

Just curious as I read your Medium story on how this came to be.
You said you used to do this on your free time but it wasn't worth it until you started charging for licenses which made you good money then your company Widen took over the project and was providing you with a team or allowing you to work on this as part of your employment.
Is that no longer the case seeing as you have a "new employer"? Since you continue to own it, does that mean Widen never officially sponsored it?
Since that is the case, why don't you go back to your old licensing model. Free for community use, license for commercial use.
