I've been a dot project user since early 2005 and have written several custom modules for customers and personal use.

i havent had need for dotproject in several years and am now looking at it again for a custom module for customer use.

can you let me know the following please

  1. is the dotproject team actively developing and fixing issues? is it staffed well or low on developers?

  2. are there major revisions planned that would render new custom modules incompatible?

I can't speak on behalf of the dotproject team/Adam, but I thought you may be interested to hear this anyway -
I work for De Bortoli Wines, we are a medium-large Australian winemaking company. We've been using dotProject since about 2005-6 as well, and are continuing to.
In the past 12-18 months we have started employing a couple of contractors to develop features/fix papercuts/build modules in line with our requirements. This process is being done in coordination with Adam/dotProject to make sure that directions are aligning, and all patches are being submitted as pull requests to this repository for his approval/critique and inclusion in the mainline codebase.

I would be interested in having an offline discussion about your experience/whether there's a possibility (if you're interested, of course) in doing any more dP development work, if that is something you'd be open to?

In terms of staffing, there is currently myself as the sole active core developer, however we are getting some great assistance as @cleary points out, and that is making a big difference. I do try to get to issues quickly and resolve them as soon as possible, however my ASAP may not equate to yours due to other commitments.

As to new developments that may affect custom modules, as long as the module is well written and developed for the 2.1 tree it should still work for some time to come. I do have plans for work in the module area, however where possible this will be backwards-compatible.

First of all I would like to express my compliments to all those that have and are working on DotProject as this is by far the best system I have seen and used.

My company is using this for the past years and without any issues. I have just updated to 2.1.9 as I did get a problem with the 2.1.5. version and PHP7 version.

Nevertheless I would also like to know if there is a possibility of even further developing dp for the future for which there may be a possibility of sponsoring this.

Please let me know if this is indeed a possibility.
