Hi Martin,

I copied this morning the 1.3 version over the 1.2.
You should also change existing pages in the trunk to prevent data loss.

Sorry for the inconvenient.

Hi,

I made a backup of the original pages this morning:

On all pages in question there was a link to the 1.3 version. So if some changes where made it was obvious that the 1.3 version had to be edited also.
There was for me no other option that to overwrite to save me a week of edit work.
An option for the next version could be a complete copy of the wiki, but there is no room for it.
And please do not make such a big point out of it, nothing is lost.

Wiki is not Subversion and it does not offer merging.
As I stated before: It would have take me at least a week to edit it by hand.
The big mistake was to divert new developments in a separate wing of the Wiki; This was advised to me to do so, which turned out to be a nightmare.
But I will not follow this strategy for coming developments, which means the Wiki will reassemble the trunk of the Rocrail development.
If you have better ideas: Please let me know.

BTW1: The panels you now see are the actual panels of the "Air" release.

BTW2: This is an open source project with no intention to be a killer app. I'm also software developer, but the commercial life is mostly much worst than this.

Hi,

yes it is the best thing to keep the Wiki in one line with the developement.

OK, I am not backed upped and I will not discus on this subject further.
I try to do my best to avoid this kind problems in the future, but I am missing some praise for all the hard work I have done.

Rob,

you totally have my respect for this perfect software and all the work you have done.

This Thread is just an example how things cook up and are getting hotter and hotter ... I guess nobody is really interested to hurt anyone by intention.

everybody: get a :beer:

and:

:rr_for_ever:

Hi Rob,
I am missing some praise
Do you have a text suggestion (that can be put into public acceptable wording :wink: ) for your next polo shirt?

Best regards, Ronald

He Rob, F****n hardly qualifies as public acceptable, would you settle for "moaners not allowed"?

No.

As alternative: "Ik ben hartstikke gek!"

No, that's to general because it accounts for anybody aged over 8 and playing with toy trains. Can I offer you one of my samoerai swords as an alternative user support tool?

Hi Martin,

<smalltalk

Sorry, you're a bit of a "victim" of an insider joke, during the Venlo event last september I gave Rob a shirt with Rocrail logo and the text "the boss" as small token of my appreciaiton for his work.

My swords adhere to the Dutch law, which means that they hardly qualify as a razor, so don't worry, although I have no idea what Rob would do with a samurai sword, you're safe anyway :wink:

Best regards, Ronald
