I wonder if they could be placed in Dave’s Hanger?

Subject: Re: [Flightgear-devel] Fwd: Remove right access to CVS
I like is aircrafts, Gerad was very used to JSBSim and implemented nice
features like water loading and dumping, pushback and use the ability of JSBSim
on carriers- so why do think to remove these aircrafts? They really shows what
JSBsim and FlightGear is able to do!
There are several aircrafts in CVS since a long time, like the Sr-20, which
is even half usuable or models without any exterior model. Are they thrown
And yes, developement goes on and we are OpenSource- and there are fans of
his aircrafts, so someone will come up and fix issues, add features etc.
Just my 2 cents

Betreff: [Flightgear-devel] Fwd: Remove right access to CVS
Referencing the attached email from Gerard Robin who has a number of his
aircraft included in FlightGear CVS. He has indicated to me that he is no
longer interested in maintaining the CVS versions of these aircraft. This
puts us on an awkward position. Should we leave these aircraft in CVS as
unmaintained entities that will accumulate cruftiness and work less and less
well as FlightGear development goes forward? Do we find someone to
monitor updates on Gerard's web page and try to keep these aircraft up to date
in CVS ourselves (assuming his license terms allow that?) Do we remove
the aircraft entirely from CVS? Do we wait and see if Gerard changes his
mind again next week?

Subject: Remove right access to CVS FlightGear/data
You probably noticed that i have stopped to update on CVS data, every model
that i am working on.
[snipped out the reasons why, but judging from the original CC list, this
arises from an ongoing feud with a single FlightGear developer ... this is my
(Curt Olson's) interpretation. Gerard can discuss those reasons on the
list of he chooses to.]
Consequently, for the health of the community, in order to avoid
at least coming from me, i whitdraw from any official "contribution"
I will continue to work , with FlightGear like i did in the past, for
friends , and for me.
I know that i am not alone within that external FlightGear community.
I ever offered to people who like it, my work.
To conclude, could you remove my right access to CVS FlightGear/data ?
I guess that this would be better for the security of FlightGear.
Thanks for your work.
J'ai décidé d'ętre heureux parce que c'est bon pour la santé.
