THERE IS NO DELAY

“Most of you who are new might not know that we are shooting for a Jan 31st Developer Preview Release. We (being Owen, Scott, Rich and I) really want to hit this first release deadline hard. — Chris J. Davis, January 15th 2007

Some may be wondering after we, the elite Habari committers, promised a January 31st ship date for our developer preview why there hasn’t been a release yet. Or a website. I have prepared a list of reasons.

  1. Developers aren’t ready for the awesomeness that is Habari. It’s really for their own safety that they protect them from Habari while we dumb in down enough for the non-anointed.
  2. We decided that since N people working on something is better than 1. N + 1 will be N^N awesome, so we’ve decided to invite more cooks into the kitchen.
  3. We can’t fucking agree on anything. The meritocratic process is producing such a wealth of ideas we have had to slow down to keep up.

And those pesky WordPress developers? My feelings — as usual — we will slaughter them all.

    I think it’s great that they missed the 31 Jan deadline they set. It means one of three things:

    1. They are workling to make the dev release even better than first intended.
    2. They aren’t actually doing anything. This is a “ghost” project that the “developers” are hawking trying to get themselves and their blogs even more hits.
    3. See the crossed out bit on number three above. Always happens when you have more than 1 person running a project.
