    Arbiter. Wheres the activity?

    Hi.

    I just stumbled over Arbiter again and realized (more now than the last time i saw it) that its a great idea.
    I noticed lastcraft and McGruff are developers for the project, and also that its inactive and have been so for a year.

    Based on the description requirements it really seems like an interesting project and something that could evolve into a great tool for many of us.
    Im certain that the reason lastcraft and McGruff havent worked on it is because of little time (who have sparetime eh?), so i figured i'd propose here that someone else maybe should give it a go. Right now i found it so interesting that i will see if i get some time to look at it and maybe see if i can contribute.
    Maybe there are someone here that suddenly found themself in a situation with spare coding time that would like to pick up the ball?

    I keep thinking "in another couple of months I'll be free" but something always comes up and I never seem to have any free time for personal projects. Funnily enough at the moment I'm down to "in a couple of weeks I'll be free" and was looking forward to doing some work on Arbiter if that comes to pass. I'm embarassed that I haven't done anything after offering to help. If you'd like to help out yourself please get in touch with Marcus.

    It originally stalled waiting for some SimpleTest additions (now done), but never got going again. It pains me I haven't been able to get back to it. It's soley due to increased workload and kid(s). It's not even a very big project. As you say, it has a real user need.

    Sadly, apart from just getting more depressed, I cannot do anything right now to get it going again . I am a month away from getting back to personal projects, and SimpleTest has the priority due to it's user base.

    I suggest you keep hassling Noel .

    yours, Marcus
