Hello everyone

Sorry it took me a few days to answer that thread.

First of all I am REALLY REALLY happy to see that a few persones are
stepping up to continue to work on Cloudkitty.

The situation is, like usually, a chaining of events (and honestly Thomas
it is absolutely not related to the sale of Objectif Libre by Linkbynet).
In late 2019 we tried to push hard to organize a community around
Cloudkitty. We have tried to organise a few call with some users explaining
them the next challenges that the project will be facing and how we could
all work on that. Like it is the case for many projects we had little/no
By early 2020 we had some turn over in the company (once again not related
to the sale) and we have started to organise ourself to continue our
ongoing on CLoudkitty like we are doing since the beginning of the project,
that I have started some years ago... And then the COVID crisis arrived,
and like many compagny in the world we had to change our priorities...
During the end of summer (before holidays..) we started to organize again
internally to continue that work. So it is a great news that a community is
rising, and we will be really happy to work with the rest of it to continue
to improve Cloudkitty, especially since like Thomas said "It does the job"
