C(ontinued)-MaNGOS -- README
Welcome to C(ontinued)-MaNGOS
CMaNGOS is a free project with the following goal:
Doing Emulation Right!
This means, we want to focus on:
- This project is focused on developing software!
- Also there are many other aspects that need to be done and are considered equally important.
- Anyone who wants to do stuff is very welcome to do so!
- This project is about developing a server software that is able to emulate a well known MMORPG service.
- Our goal must always be to provide the best code that we can.
- Being 'right' is defined by the behaviour of the system we want to emulate.
- Developing things right also includes documenting and discussing how to do things better, hence...
- Learning and teaching are very important in our view, and must always be a part of what we do.
To be able to accomplish these goals, we support and promote:
- of our work: Our work - including our code - is released under the GPL. So everybody is free to use and contribute to this open source project.
- for our developers and contributors on things that interest them. No one here is telling anybody what to do. If you want somebody to do something for you, pay them, but we are here to enjoy.
- to have FUN with developing.
A friendly environment
- We try to leave personal issues behind us.
- We only argue about content and not about thin air!
- We follow the Netiquette.
-- The C(ontinued)-MaNGOS Team!
