A donation? What is it for?

ChristianHJW spoke to Frank Klemm, the long-time developer of MPC who took over from Andree Buschmann, and he found out that Frank's PC is out of order. Its certainly not like he didn't have the money to repair it, no. But you maybe know this feeling: There is something you have to do, say repair the car, but you can't find your toolbox anymore. This is all so frustrating, as you know its a lot of work and even the first necessity to start working on it is missing, you decide to take the bus instead...

This wasn't the only reason that he didn't continue to program like he used to. But our hope is that with a new, fully setup PC for him we could give him the 'tool' to actually start coding again and show him that we REALLY do care about his work, and appreciate his outstanding work on MPC. Frank confirmed that he will accept the PC.


So what could result from this?

When Frank will be productive again with a new PC, we will likely see a finalized SV 7.5 of MPC. He may also pick up work on SV8 again, or concentrate on something completely different. Whatever he will do, we are sure that he will put this PC to good use, and that the work of this gifted programmer will benefit the community. However, don't think of this as a payment and obligation for him to immediately program something. It is rather an acknowledgement and a chance.


The donation has ended. For any questions about a pending donation, PM me.

I'm (actually the MODEM) is transmitting the current source ball of SV7 and SV8 to Christian.
This contains the encoder and decoder of the current SV7 stable tree and the SV7.5/8
experimental tree.

Hi Frank, nice to see you around again.

Can I make this clear - are you transmitting the sv7 encoder source to Christian for public (CVS) access?
