No Love from the .NET Community

Posted by Kirby Turner on July 28, 2006

Kevin Downs, of NDoc fame, has decided to stop work on NDoc. One reason is the lack of love from the .NET community. This widely used open source tool for generating source code documentation from .NET applications has received very few community contributions and from what I gathered even less financial support. And to make matter worse Kevin was the victim of a mail-bomb attack believed to be directed at him for not providing .NET 2.0 support fast enough.

I’m not surprised at the lack of community support but the mail-bomb attack is just plan insane. I don’t blame Kevin for stepping down.
