Release new versions #475
@blatinier Is he not willing to share this responsibility with others? I'm thankful that he originally created isso, but I've been concerned for a while about the project being stuck and people loosing interest to contribute. I wish isso would grow and spread eating some of those data mining disquses out there :)
I totally understand that. I had thought more about an unofficial release that only serves as a temporary solution until he is active again. That's why I deliberately didn't use the word fork or takeover.
But on the other hand, you should also consider whether you are not harming the project itself by just waiting. For some users this will take too long. In the worst case nobody uses Isso anymore and the project can be buried.
For example, I would like to offer the RSS function. Because I am on vacation, I tried yesterday to install Isso "from source" on Uberspace 7. No matter what I tried, <script data-main="/js/embed" src="/js/components/requirejs/require.js"></script> could not be found. Therefore I am currently thinking about whether or how I can extract the necessary data from the Isso database to create my own RSS feed. Of course, this requires some effort (I'm not a programmer). Probably it would be easier to use something other than Isso that offers RSS. Most likely I'll create my own RSS feed but others won't want or can' do the work and use a different comment system.
@abnd90 How did you try it? I understand we can now do
But if something goes wrong, can we go back to the previous version? Something like
where X.X.X is the previous version?
