Just wondering why the last commit to sourceforge was on 2011?

Since one of the problems of ENIGMA/LateralGM is lack of developers... Shouldn't there be a strong presence in this sites?

Sourceforge
GoogleCode
Etc.

Just a thought of course.

There's no reason to use all the open source hosting sites. Almost no project does that; the exceptions usually mirror their repository to GitHub because they're not cool enough to switch fully. ENIGMA moved to GitHub around that time, so SourceForge is no longer updated.

There's no reason to use all, true but people keep downloading from sourceforge since the project's page is alive and the downloads function, and those people see a project with 3 years without an update, since nowhere it says you should go elsewere to download the most recent version.

Also a legend requesting developers could be placed there, this could bring the hands needed, not a garanty but a posssibility but still.

Again just my two cents.

We dropped sourceforge a long time ago, in fact long before I joined ENIGMA, so don't worry about it, Josh and Ism apparently see no need to remove it.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

The only thing we should maybe do is remove that sourceforge site. But hosting on multiple ones is stupid. They are not actually meant for people to download or popularize the "product" from. They are for developing the "product". So it's version control, not distribution or marketing. And for source version control we use GitHub.

I would just point to the project's site for downloads but... It's not my decision to make.
