Maybe you've heard about the crisis going on with DHH, Basecamp and the whole politics. I won't judge any decisions or sides, but I'm concerned and really worried seeing Rails core members leaving the project and strong contributors talking about forking the project. From the outside it seems like the whole thing is falling apart.
Ruby on Rails has come to be one of the loves of my life and watching all this is causing me a great deal of distress. I would like to think that if the problem is within Basecamp, the earthquake should be contained there, but I guess it is the consequence of a tightly coupled system plus a context that is not the best. Anyway, very sad.
