Is the project still under active development?
Good to hear!
Why I ask the question: Unfortunately, we had problems with a few solutions, which stopped their development relatively early. Especially with such a in depth system like a CMDB it is important for us to have an active development there.
Especially this was one of the reasons why we started the project DATAGERRY. We are mainly an ISP and maintaining several thousand lines, devices, ports and services. All CMDB we found, did not fit our needs. So we have an intrinsic interest in maintaining this software for a long time.
*A good starting point for this is to look into the repository. There you can see a consistent drop in activity since October last year. Is the Github repository your main repo or just a mirror which is updated on release?
Github is not only a mirror. We are working directly with it.
Yes, I have seen the backlog. There are also several features in planning which would be interesting. However, I would be more interested in a roadmap/release plan. I think I am not alone here.
We will try communicate more about our future plans regarding DATAGERRY. We will discuss internally how we can do this.
We only offer direct contact persons to customers with support contracts.
So I have to buy an expensive support contract before I can talk to someone?
Well, the development of DATAGERRY is not free for us. Our developers want some frequent payment and we love to give it to them. Having some kind of revenue would be nice.
I have written to firstname.lastname@example.org, but have not received a reply.
We will fix this. Sorry for that. We will integrate this address into our ticket system
Oh i see, ok. Is there also a way to contribute to the development independently?
Yes, but it’s not that easy. We need an agreement with the contributor about the development and we need some kind of quality control. Very important is that new features need to fit into our (not published) plans for development.
If you are interested in contributing, let us know. Your are welcome.
