Lead PHP Developer Quits
July 28, 2006 @ 06:10:07

According to this new post on Slashdot, one of the lead developers of the Zend Engine has quit.

Jani Taskinen, one of the lead developers of the Zend Engine (the engine that powers PHP), as well as a lead developer for the thread safety system and other core components of the PHP project, has quit in a relatively cryptic message to the php-internals mailing list. Jani has been involved with PHP for about 6 years and his loss will undoubtedly be a big blow for the PHP project.

As the news.php.net server is apparently slowing down amazingly from the Slashdot exposure, here's a paste of the message for those interested. It's definitely a great loss to the community as a whole, and here's to hoping that someone will step up and take a place in this unfortunate hole in the development process.

If you'd like to find out more about Jani Taskinen, check out this summary of some of his contributions.

Mambo Lead Developer Quits
May 08, 2006 @ 09:42:39

According to this post on his blog today, one of the board memebers from the Mambo project, Martin N Brampton is formally leaving his position.

I now feel it necessary to resign from the Board of the Mambo Foundation with immediate effect. Since joining the Board, a number of minor irregularities have been evident, and not all of them have been rectified even though I have sought to raise them. It is apparent that early decisions were taken by exchange of email and no records were kept. Present banking arrangements breach the Foundation's rules.

In terms of fundamental principles, there is a considerable concern in my mind that the Board is not informing itself about the members wishes, and not making decisions that fully take account of their interests. I see this as a breach of trust.

He goes on to talk about some of the ongoing issues that the Board faced, including misinformation about trademark issues and their change to allow the membership of the Foundation to suggest rule changes.

As the majority decisions being made by the Board conflict with my understanding of those obligations, I cannot continue as a Board member any longer. As there was no resolution to appoint me to the Board, I am unsure how you will handle my resignation. I will remain a member of the Foundation and continue with my work in Mambo development.

For the complete story, check out this official release...
