Hi,

Hasn't been any decent update in 6+ months. Seems like a great project, but needs to continue to be maintained. There don't appear to be many alternatives to this style connection manager.

@perseo22 If you don't talk nobody can talk for you

The problem is donation? the problem is free time? The problem is perl? etc etc

Please let the community know the issues so the community can help you for developing PAC.

If David is tired, it's probably time to find new collaborators for the project. There are so many ways to make the project attractive for donors ; giving negative answers is one of the worst :/

If communication is broken and, for whatever reason that we will respect, a collaboration is not possible, well, ... it will be time for a fork and a new core-team.

I fucking hate donation buttons. I donate when I think I have to, whether there is a button or not.

David, what happened that day? If you think you have to donate, how do you donate without a button?

If other users want to donate, how will they know donations are possible? I would like to donate $100 (more than SecureCRT costs) because I believe in open source.

I also believe in being nice to people, and accepting simple pull requests :)

In fact, the project is no longer supported and is not being developed by the author. So it's better to look for a new developer or take the development on yourself.

@perseo22 Are you willing to continue development AND/OR include members of this community into the project as committers?

As a Fedora maintainer I have a responsibility to work with upstream, but also one to the users to help keep this software thriving.

You have users here @karlfiabeschi @Prototype-X @dandv @gfrenoy that seem to want to keep your hard work alive and I'm inclined to help them find an outlet for them to do so.

I don't really have time for games, and neither do you apparently. Do you want people and yourself developing on this anymore as pacmanager or should we take our stuff elsewhere?

As we did not hear anything from David, we made a fork of this project and rebranded it to Ásbrú Connection Manager.

We have reached a point where the software is working and is correctly packaged for Debian/Ubuntu. A release candidate is available for testing.

We are now looking for help and support to finalize tests, package it for other distributions and think about the future of this great piece of software :)

If you can help or just want to try an alternative, please join us on https://github.com/asbru-cm/asbru-cm !

So you want us to "fucking donate" yet don't provide any clear method to donate...

Some quality community interaction right there.

@kjbweb I've donated 4 or 5 times already (modest donations 10-15 dollars) and I didn't need a donate button in github. You could donate via its website, there you have a donate button for you:

https://sites.google.com/site/davidtv/

Maybe David is tired of receiving nothing from community. This tool is a pro tool that I've been used since the last 4 years. Project may not be updated but for the last 4 years of using it I've only have 2 issues that has been already solved.

Contribute to the project, don't let his work die in vain, for the sake of open source give him a chance :)

It is a shame to hear that from @perseo22 I remember I contacted him via Teamviewer to get some help from him with PAC manager. At least the community is big to maintain this wonderful job alive. It's like 7 years using it without any issues. It is time to use the new version that was forked. Thanks anyway.
