"The developer team for Mambo, [ the content management system I use for this site, pe7er], has left the project over a dispute with Miro, the copyright owner. Seems Miro setup the Mambo Foundation in a much different way than the developers expected." An open letter can be read at: opensourcematters.org

"Now long-time members of the Mambo community are loosing status at the Mambo forum sites and messages pointing to the developer team's new site, www.opensourcematters.org are being deleted.

The core developers team of the award-winning CMS Mambo has announced to discontinue their relationship with Miro for future releases of the CMS.

The reason for this is the announcement earlier this week that Miro was working on the 'Mambo Foundation'. One of the main reasons for this annoucement is the fact that this foundation was to be formed without consulting the actively involved community members such as core developers, 3rd party developers, translators, documentors, etc... Since Miro hasn't been active in the community at all for some time now, it seems they are just trying to cash the latest success of the CMS at LinuxWorld SF.

At the moment all 'troops' are gathering at www.opensourcematters.org, where it has become clear that the future of the CMS is secured. The majority, if not all, active community members support the core developers team in their decision and wish to release a first stable version of the new CMS, formerly known as Mambo. "
