let's (almost) open-source socialengine PHP to continue the development on our own!

so, since we realized that we are never going to see socialengine php 5 and socialengine php 4 seems almost dead, I am wondering if someone could be interested in a sort of open/closed source development.


Obviously we cannot share SocialEngine code, but as license holders, we can surely share it among us in a private repository.


Who would be interested in actively continue developing and improving socialengine in this way?

      1. My idea is to double check the domains of the interested people with SocialEngine guys, however I am not sure it would be piracy anyway. We are not talking about a nulled version, so the code works only if the license is valid, am I correct? I am not t...  more
