Dear music lovers,
I’m happy to see that Openwhyd usage stats remains steady despite the fact that I disabled the background playback of tracks from the website. ✊
After having maintained Openwhyd for almost 6 years (since its startup product phase to its evolution to an open-source project), I took a step back and decided to reduce my involvement to a bare minimum:
- to keep the server running,
- ensure user data privacy and safety (weekly backups),
- and help developers improve it.
This means that I will not contribute code to Openwhyd anymore.
From now on, if you want bugs to be fixed and/or features to be added to Openwhyd, the best you can expect from me is to help you do it. (You or a developer friend of yours.)
If you want to get involved in the development of Openwhyd, please read our FAQ, then mention @adrienjoly on any Github issue you’d like to contribute to, or send an email to email@example.com. I’ll do my best to help! (Beginners are welcome too!)
I hope that you’ll understand my decision, and that new maintainers will be interested in keeping our product and community of music lovers alive! 🔥
