I’ve decided to make professional paid support of LPAR2RRD.
Here are my reasons which led me to that thought:
- I have not touched the source code for nearly 1.5 year (looks like the last version is quite stable :) ). No time at all and lack of motivation...
- Only what I trying to keep is support of the tool, but my response times are not what I am proud of
- the tool itself would need big time investment to implement new functionalities, rewrite the web face (would need to hire a web designer for that) etc.
Only the solution what I see how to keep continuity and do not let project slowly died is paid support.
Basically I feel that as the last chance for any further development or support from my side.
I simply cannot manage to do everything I actually do around and still work on LPAR2RRD.
If I would get some money from the project then I will be able to prioritize my other activities in favour of LPAR2RRD development and support.
From that reason I’ve created new LPAR2RRD home here: www.lpar2rrd.com
I am about to found a company which would be responsible for support. Based on your feedback I will decide go or no-go.
I could even imagine working on LPAR2RRD full time in case of enough support subscribers.
I do not intend to force you ordering support. If you are happy with the actual version, you have no issues etc ... that this makes me also happy.
Make people happy was the main reason why I spent my free time by developing of the tool since 2006. I do not regret that at all! It was fun.
Support details can be found here: www.lpar2rrd.com/suppo...
Let me know who would be inetrested in that offer.
P.S.: For those of you who have installed LPAR2RRD for your customers please distribute this information to them. Thanks.
