In Topic: Genetica Open Source

I would be interested, OpenSource though, by default, is open so anything that is being worked on is being released to the public for no charge in that case.

That would be the general idea behind open sourcing it, yes.

Trademarks and copyrights would still apply, and copying conditions could still be decided upon by the copyright holder.


I still have not yet heard anything back from Atlas since I emailed him, however.   I do not know how else to reach him.

I've sent off the email several days ago, but haven't heard anything back yet.  Thought I'd pop back in here to see if there were any developments.

It's been a while since I visited the forums.  I wish I had seen this thread when it first came up because this is something I would be *VERY* interested in helping with.  I may even be willing to take the lead in this regard, but am hesitant to commit to this before knowing the code thoroughly or else the wait times could be insufferably long for users with issues, and may discourage people from wanting to use the software.



May I inquire as to approximately how many lines of code it is so I can have an idea how long it might take to become generally familiar with the code base?

And if you don't have everything you need, then you can''t use the resource at all.

That's my point... these resources that are currently downloaded as needed from the site should at least be available to be installed locally so that the software does not require internet access to get them.

Ideally, I'd like to see the author open-source this software if he is taking it offline for good... because then there is a possibility that someone could port it to non-Windows computers, heck, I'd probably give porting it a try if that were to ever happen.


But failing that, some assurance that the software is at least going to continue to function into perpetuity as it always has would be nice, and really, the only way to do that is to remove its dependence on having an internet connection to be fully functional.
