I'm sticking my neck out here and saying I don't think a fork will be
needed. I think the only reason for the present problems are eventually
going to prove to be the current svn activity. Once the svn is stable I
don't think there's going to be a problem. David, you migrated
SwordReader to VS 2005, and the code is still compatible with eVC3. I
think the same will apply here when we really get down to it.
My reasons: we don't yet know that there is any possibility of
distributing eVC3 - if we can't do it, then we are simply not offering a
current project which others can join. If we do get that permission,
and I don't think it's very likely, then we are making it work on a
superseded ide, and that is not really very good.
Having said that, I too am strongly against a fork. I just think it is
not going to be needed as the only MS specific library stuff we are
using is the Windows Mobile SDK!!!
