Hi Theo, thanks for clarification and for your reply. Too bad Josh did
not pass the word along the GDP. Given how much stuff he does, I'm sure
he was just swamped with work.

I went through the Bugzilla  before I sent that mail, hence this
question. Bug 336055 looks like an Apache problem (and is trivially
fixable), bug 342569 is a feature of how the Gentoo-specific XSLT
stylesheets work, and in no way Gorg-specific (and could be probably
RESO/INVALID immediately). Looks like the only real issue is bug 315487,
the compatibility with Ruby 1.9.

Again, this is rather hard to evaluate without any evidence. I've been
running Gorg on a non-Gentoo web site for years, so I do agree that it
takes some effort to set up (like any other server application), but
without specific references to problems, it's hard to judge how much of
a troublemaker Gorg really is.
I do understand your desire not to use abandoned projects -- that's a
very reasonable stance.

See, this is *exactly* why I wrote this mail. What are "statistics for
translators"? I'm a translator myself, and nobody asked me what could
help me. What translators indicated that they consider that an
improvement over current way with metadoc.xml/overview.xml/trads.rb?
I welcome the change to git, it's great that you're willing to undertake
it, but it will surely affect the way how GDP works.
Whether a WYSIWYG editor is an improvement (or would just cause troubles
for translators due to line noise in diffs) is debatable IMHO, but that
discussion has been already started and abandoned several times.
