03:50 AM pere: silopolis[m]: yeah, I guess. but this slow progress is grinding on my patience and motivation. :(
03:55 AM silopolis[m]: pere: I hear you my friend... OtOH, we've made more for docs and translation in the last few weeks than what's been done in years!
03:56 AM pere: silopolis[m]: which might sound motivation on first glance, but make me worry if the linuxcnc project have a active community. :)
03:57 AM pere: github pull requests seem to stay unmerged even if they are trivial and obvious fixes, which is also worrysome.
04:38 PM CaptHindsight[m]: lots of PCphobes have recently adopted LCNC
04:39 PM silopolis[m]: CaptHindsight: PCphobes ?
04:39 PM CaptHindsight[m]: as soon as you could use an Rpi with an external $20 microcontroller board they jumped ship from *duinos and smoothieboards
04:40 PM silopolis[m]: ah, yeah ! 😅
04:40 PM CaptHindsight[m]: using an old $20 PC and LPT + BOB turned them off
04:41 PM silopolis[m]: But this I understand too. Because in some way, that's where I come from, just 3 years ago
04:41 PM CaptHindsight[m]: but $30 Rpi and $20-30 mcu board is wonderful
04:42 PM silopolis[m]: LCNC becoming usable on these platforms is a wonderful thing
04:44 PM silopolis[m]: It really makes it usable from the DIY garage machine to the 9 axis robot
04:45 PM silopolis[m]: I believe this will push the project to improve core strength like documentation, modularization, UX...
04:47 PM silopolis[m]: The critical mass is in sight, resources are scarse, strategy as always is the key...
04:48 PM CaptHindsight[m]: just needs some leadership without a dictator
04:53 PM silopolis[m]: Don't have enough project intimacy yet to comment on this
04:57 PM silopolis[m]: BUT, this raises another point, that is that project management, decision making, commit rigts... would benefit to be more explicit
05:42 PM JT-Shop: unfortunately developers are scarce... I used to work on the documents but so much has changed in master I'm lost
