I've left DC Water and Environment so I'm not the maintainer of DCMMS
any more. You may want to address Maher Karim (Maher_Karim@...)
or the dcmms-info mailing list for the latest information what is
happening with DCMMS.
I'm CC'ing the mailing list so that the people are in the picture.
I'm still willing to contribute to DCMMS when time permits (and DC
Water and Enviroment
is accepting my contributions).
DCMMS 2.0.0 is basically ready for release. Only the installer,
upgrading instructions and
some testing needs to be done. The new release will shift DCMMS from
PHP 4 to PHP 5
along with a shift to the MS4W structure and some security
improvements. The new code
is available in the SVN repository (branches/ms4w) and would be my
first choice when using DCMMS as a codebase for other projects.
My new employer is also open for new projects (incl. building on
projects like DCMMS):
To reiterate my support for the old DC Water and Environment projects,
I've posted a first Sourceforge Service offer for BMFO, I could do the same for
The price is an introductory offer. If there's serious interest in such
services, I'll try to get PamConsult to offer these things.
Depending on your requirements, DCMMS might not be the ideal starting
point for your
project. The project codebase is quite "old" for a PHP-based mapping system now.
A lot of technology has changed, there's AJAX and frameworks like
p.mapper or ka-Map.
I'm monitoring npsource now. Maybe it would be a good idea if you
would create an
npsource-mailinglist to ease the communication of those interested in
the project. Sourceforge is offering this service.
I've also "blogged" npsource:
