I'm excited about an upcoming release, however, I loath the perspective of the open source community as 2nd class citizens.
I cannot think of a single project where this strategy has proves successful and given the power of OCC's technology I think OCC could be in much better condition if it were to commit to open source software.
Since Salome just moved to publishing its repositories I had some hope of OCC stepping up its game, but things are just getting worse.
OCC, when are you _finally_ going to commit to open source software and move away from the current half assed situation?
That means a repository and a bug tracker at minimum.
The poor management strategy choosen hurts both OCC and its OS community. Without a decent project structure there will never ever be any form of synthesis between a product and a community.
