freedb is not able to operate without Joerg and Ari. There are other - hopefully free - projects that will take over freedbs heritage in a better way and stay free. freedbs future did not seem to be kept free regarding the lastest developments, so I tried to steer against this as I felt it more important to stay free instead of getting fancy web 2.0 features. But unfortunately Joerg and Ari (the main doers behind freedb) disagreed with me and decided that they want to go another direction. I will refuse to comment their postings in public and I will thank both Ari anf Joerg for their work and their support.
Now being sick of how things turned out lately and I am not being able to run the project with the people in freedb left, I will stop this project in the forseeable future.
If somebody is interested in a pretty well-known domain, drop me a line: lurchentsafter at gmail.com
Sorry for this. Michael Kaiser
Weitere offene Briefe sind auf der Homepage zu finden. Man kann nur hoffen, dass die gewaltige Datenbank von über zwei Millionen Alben nicht in Vergessenheit geht und sich ein Projekt findet, dass die Arbeit von Joerg Hevers, Ari Sundholm und Michael Kaiser fortsetzt.
