1.- TPV developers seem to be agreeing with me (at least, none of
them so far denied it in this list). Same thing if to believe their
own blogs and forums... But for Kirsten and Marine (Kirsten probably
because she values most shadow rendering and other rendering
improvements in v2, and Marine because she always provided
RestrainedLove for the current official viewer), none of them so far
consider moving to the viewer 2 code base in the short term, and
several of them (at least three in this list, me included) seem
pretty much disapointed (to say the least), with LL's stance.
Oh, I also had a look to the mercurial repository for Snowstorm,
and tried to count the TPV developpers who submitted patches...
Even someone amputated with fingers on each hand, could still
count them on one hand...
Plus, in my messages on this list, I merely pointed out how, when
considering the pros and the cons of a move to viewer 2, LL's own
stance on Snowstorm is far from an encouragement to do the move,
and even less to contribute to Snowstorm.

to the last extremity before I would even consider giving up); you
are probably confusing me with Aleric who just left.
I might be blunt with LL, but they often deserve it, and I always try
to be constructive. I've got "some experience", mind you, both in RL
(counted in decades) and in SL (counted in years)... That's "where I'm
While my prose in this list most often only represents my personal
opinion, it might be of some value, even to LL... and even if they
might well often cringe when reading me. :-P
