Tres, I have no idea why you have adopted such an antagonistic
attitude in this issue. Maybe we can both take a step back and calm
down a bit? I'm not trying to dismiss your opinion or anything.
Sure, we can seek help, and we're already doing that. Everyone is
welcome to join in LMMS development and contribute in whatever way
You mention limited resources, which is very true - we're severely
lacking in developers. If we do manage to hire a paid developer to
work on LMMS for a limited time, that is also another limited
resource. So it comes down to plain old logic and resource
management: we have both our own limited resources, plus the limited
resources we've "bought", and each of those resources should be
utilized in such a way that we're utilizing the overall resources
Ergo: it's best to use our own resources (ie. our current volunteer
developers) for things which they are capable of doing, and save the
"bought" resources (ie. paid developer) for things that we're not
capable of implementing on our own. Because otherwise, we're just
using all resources on things we could be doing on our own, and the
things we can't do on our own are left undone - and when that
includes fundamental things like the core, that will mean that we'll
run into problems later on... which ultimately will mean that even
the improvements we did get done will go to waste.
Does this make sense to you?
