Well they haven't said they won't. Bear in mind that the community here are trackbuilders rather than programmers -- you may be overstating the abilities and interest that will be shown.



I fully appreciate that and the fact that the number of programmers interesting in track building are as scarce as Scale7 modellers with a completed layout in my view is all the more reason for a community based effort.

With such limited numbers then it seems sensible to consider a group effort to avoid duplicate work. Also aside from yourself, I don't think any one developer will know the full scope of the application nor have all the answers. Hence a group effort would be mutually beneficial.  

But don't go overboard -- for the foreseeable future the "official" version will still be Templot2 and I don't want to be wasting my time on that if everyone has voted with their feet for your SuperTemplot versionThere is no intention for any super Templot version - it would only be a pale facsimile of Templot2. My only thoughts at the moment are replacing the missing functions you have been unable to open source. For example the pdf export facility, I noted in the Lazarus installation a couple of pdf packages - whether these would be able to be used for OpenTemplot I'm not sure. I'm quite happy to investigate it but would be hesitant in doing so if there are others also doing the same work.

Hi Adrian,

Let's see how things develop - it has only been 4 days so far.

If some folks want to coalesce around a group OpenTemplot project I'm happy to join in a bit. I just don't want to do anything which will deter beginner coders and dabblers from posting their ideas and questions, and creating their own private Templot versions if they wish.

I can see the advantage in not duplicating effort, for example in replacing the PDF export.

Why don't you go ahead and set up whatever we need? I confess that I'm floundering in trying to make sense of the Tortoise client and the instructions on the Sourceforge site.

What I would very much prefer is that any discussions take place here on Templot Club rather than on the Sourceforge mailing lists, to keep it as inclusive as possible. And free of all those abbreviations and acronyms which mean nothing to me.

Martin.

Hello,
        Not being a programmer I can only wish all those interested in Martins gift of an open version the best for any future developments they may care to make.  I thank you Martin for your generous and humble contributions to making it possible to recreate prototypical model track to such a high degree of realism and accuracy.  Could I just say please avoid being overloaded with involvement in two projects at the same time because you appear unable to resist getting stuck in.
Regards
Trevor  :)
