I agree - real artists ship. But I can't make any personal
promise/commitment to any non paid work right now :). Family and all -
the little time that is left I try to spend elsewhere.
The main implementor of Sthub is Nicolas, and he is progressing
aggressively. And he has a first deadline in the "near future", but I
don't want to talk on his behalf. I think he really wants to "deliver
first" and talk later :)
BUT... my personal impression is that the project looks very good (it
already has lots of stuff working), has a really powerful architecture
and *should* IMHO be embraced and extended/integrated in every way we
can think of - to finally tie together the SS/SM and all other efforts
in this area into something sustainable and cross Smalltalk.
Just my vision :)
Just to "tease" some more - the other day Nicolas got the MC repo
functionality (you know, list files, put and get) going on top of
Seaside-REST/Phriak/Riak. And then he hammered it with apache-bench and
let's say he is very pleased with the results. :)
