Please deactivate project powll

Asked by Henning Eggers

Hi guys!

I kept looking for the option to do this myself until I realized that I am missing some privileges that I used to have ... ;-)

I am sorry but I have to ask you to deactivate our project POWLL. We will not be renewing our commercial subscription for it. Do you have an easy way to delete all 98 branches? If not, I'll do the clicky work myself, no problem.

Reasons? Lack of acceptance in the team, both for Launchpad and Bazaar. They were perceived as complicated and obscure, with little tool support. I am working with mac guys and apparently there are cool UIs for git on Mac. From a design point of view, GitHub does have the edge. I see how much that matters to many people and how willing they are to accept less functionally in exchange for better looks. I wish I could have evangelized them but was too busy coding. So I am afraid, switching to git is the easy way out for me.

Please forward that to Matt if he is still doing exit interviews. :-) I am happy to answer more questions about that, too.

Thanks a lot. Remember, we always meet twice ... ;-)
