Hi Jeremy, thanks for sharing.

I will respond to the "horrible accusations" :).

  • ease of installation issue was addressed - the package is available on the official Python Package Index and installable with easy_install askbot command. In some cases some dependency libraries will still need to be installed separately though and this will be improved upon.

  • moderation tools - I agree are important. I will collect the list of requirements for this and will just get it done.

  • confusing code - yes it is not simple - but to really compare you need to try reading others code as well ;). Anyway - within a month there will be ample code documentation on askbot. Documentation is the only real way to fix this.

Documentation Developer documentation is the only real way to fix this.that. Creating documentation is part of the current focus.

  • that few people use askbot for some reason - well I think the main reason is that this project was launched after others had a chance to advertise. So I don't buy this one :). In fact I think askbot has a chance to be the most stable project of all.

Anyway - I think that evaluating more options is a good thing to do because it helps to make a more informed decision.

Thanks again for your input!

In fact I think askbot has a chance to be the most stable project of and dependable software of them all.

  • moderation tools - I agree are important. important, in fact they should have been developed before. I will collect the list of requirements for this and will just get it done.
