That sounds like a good plan.
I actually after saying I wouldn't decided to just shove over early, I am on
both lists, so I can both continue discussions on this new location and see
the sunset messages of this one.
One thing though, I'd actually like list start and maybe sunset messages or
the sunset messages archived if not in list archive but in somewhere.
There was supposed to be an nvda project history and I actually think now is
the time to make one.
I don't mean versions but someone discussed a bit ago about modifying the
code to get rid of historic things.
That person said that code contained all the advancements from way back.
I did say something should be done and I say it again.
I don't mean nvda as a screenreader, I mean nvda as a project.
I would like a history archive to be updated with various events.
1. when nvaccess starts and how.
2. when did nvda start and what the first version did?
3. all major events that made the reader what it was today and maybe the
minor events or sub events.
How all the lists started and ended and why messages etc.
All the grants recieved and all that sort of thing and anything else you or
anyone else can come up with.
Obviously this would be an online wiki or some brief that would be
continuously updated but I do actually want to see that and think its
important we don't loose our history.
I'd actually like to know where I came from and why I came there.
my first version was version 425 and I was just out of university, but for
myself I just got it because it was free never bothered much on documenting.
I know its a lot of work and may need a few people to do it but could that
be done? I will help where I can but its just an idea from me.
