After Christoph’s commit from Tuesday, labelled « change Privacy-API to C++ », I almost wanted to fork Claws, because the more time passed, the more I felt Sylpheed-Claws wasn’t progressing in the best (in my opinion at least) direction. After having discussed that with Paul, I brought up the subject on IRC. A very little flamewar ensued, which was stopped suddenly by Christoph who decided to take a break wrt Claws. As it may sound egoistical, I am rather happy with this, because forking would have been more painful, and it had become apparent than most of the other developers (and users) were agreeing with my views on Claws future. The next page contains excerpts of a long mail I wrote to Paul to explain him my motivations towards forking.
