|[monit] New web-pages, new URL and news
|Mon, 27 Oct 2008 19:24:03 +0100
Hi all,We have just released new web-pages for Monit and moved Monit to http://mmonit.com/monit/ Most notably we have installed a Monit wiki which we hope you all will use and help contribute to.
The last months we have been busy working on M/Monit. We think and hope that M/Monit will be very useful for all those who are using Monit on many servers. More information about M/Monit can be found here, http://mmonit.com/
I must admit that our main focus that last months has been on getting M/Monit ready, but now that we are nearing a final release with M/ Monit we do plan to use much more time on Monit. After all, Monit is the main engine for M/Monit, so improving Monit is important.
We have identified three vectors we will start with and you can read more about them here:http://mmonit.com/monit/next/
If you have any other suggestions or ideas we would very much like to hear them, either send them to this mailing list or use the wiki which has a brand new and empty page for suggestions.
Although Monit is an open-source project, code contribution from others are minimal and amounts to maybe 5% of the total work. So we are basically two people doing most of the work  and the current plans will require much time and many work hours, both now and in future improvements and refactoring.
M/Monit is our strategy for enabling us to put more work hours into Monit development. We plan to sell M/Monit for a reasonable price and any revenues will be put back into Monit and M/Monit development. So if you want to support Monit, do try M/Monit .
Jan-Henrik We were four persons some time ago, but unfortunately, after doing tremendous work in the project, both Christian Hopp and Rory Toma have left for greener pastures, though I think they are still lurking around on the this mailing list :)
 As much as we would like to release M/Monit as open source there really is no business model for selling open source software. So M/ Monit will unfortunately be closed source, but access to the source code will of course be possible by buying a license.
