MiaCMS is a fork of the Mambo CMS. Why a fork? We felt that the
policies, processes, and priorities of the official Mambo Foundation
were having a negative impact on the code and the community.
Innovation, creativity, and team spirit have all but been eliminated.
Thus the fork. Much of the same crew that built you Mambo 4.5.3+
through 4.6.3 are here now continuing development on the same award
winning software base that everyone has come to know and love. Let us
make clear we never gave up on the product or the community, but rather
just the Foundation which controlled it.
The MiaCMS project was
initiated by four individuals with profound knowledge of the Mambo CMS
system. The founding team includes Al Warren (alwarren), Chad Auld
(cauld), Ozgur Cem Sen (ocs), and Richard Ong (arpee). Together we have
held the following roles within Mambo over the years; project leader,
board member, steering committee member, core team leader, quality team
leader, documentation team leader, and server administration. Those who
know the project well will recognize those listed as what was the
majority of the current core Mambo development team. Who is left to
carry on Mambo development? The answer is not many. We plan to continue
down the revolutionary path we laid out for Mambo before ultimately cut
our ties to the Mambo Foundation. Just that we will be doing it as
MiaCMS from this point forward. So again... this is a fork, we do give
credit to Mambo for past work done, and we do aim to make MiaCMS even
better (in fact we think it already is) !
