In September 2008, there was a TWiki Summit in Berlin, at which a Community Council was elected by Community members to move the TWiki.org project to independence from the TWIKI.NET startup. A few days ago, TWIKI.NET responded, by taking over full control of all of TWiki.org’s servers, locking everyone out and converting the project to Commercial open source.
In the short term, I hope to continue supporting the TWiki installers I build, and with the rest of the active development community, to build an independent alternative.
Please support the twikifork if you’d like to support those that previously developed the codebase called TWiki.
