Re: Thank you Tony (was: XSL-list doomed)
From: G. Ken Holman <gkholman@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> > Again I think you are being far too unfair, Paul. How can I be 'fair' or 'unfair' with technical issues ? The archive of XSL-list is broken since summer and nobody bothers to fix it. Is it 'fair' or 'not fair' - I don't understand. It is the *fact*. List loops starting from October 24. It is the *fact*. The letter I was quoting has been sent to the list at October 24 and since then I saw this leter at least 3 times ( I prefere not to see it at all ;-) I'm not saying is Tony 'bad' or 'good'. If he has no time / abilities to fix the archive in 2 months, this means archive will remain broken forever. I want XSL-list archive accessible from the browser. If official XSL-list archive is gone, I can try to provide the alternative XSL-list website. For free and on my own time. I just don't want to mess with usual political problems this may cause. So I'm trying to understand what is the situation with XSL-list. Maybe Tony will write : "I'm tired of this and I have no time - let's move it to egroups" ? I'm not discussing any moral issues. Plain technical. Rgds.Paul. > At 00/10/28 23:56 -0400, Paul Tchistopolskii wrote: > >It was not my idea to bring down the XSL-list, > >but this have happened.
