2018-02-09 08:33:20 GMT <bmejias> Good morning all. To anyone wondering, I just want to clarify that the Order of the Bee is not behind Alfresco's acquisition.
2018-02-09 08:33:34 GMT <angelborroy> hehe
2018-02-09 08:33:46 GMT <angelborroy> probably we have to write a blog post about this :D
2018-02-09 08:34:42 GMT <bmejias> I was thinking about the same, but since I'm always late for blog post, I preferred to make this informal announcement to avoid an avalanche of comments and qustioning
2018-02-09 08:45:05 GMT <hi-ko> bmejias: why didn't you spent the > 100 mio $? ;-)
2018-02-09 08:51:36 GMT <fcorti> bmejias: lol
2018-02-09 08:54:50 GMT <bmejias> hi-ko because we didn't have time for a board meeting to discuss the subject
2018-02-09 08:54:56 GMT <bmejias> it took us by surprise
2018-02-09 08:55:04 GMT <fcorti> I read also about possible concerns around the Open Source strategy, especially about he existence of the Community Editions (Content and Activiti). The current new owner confirmed that Open Source is still a positive differentiation on the market. This means that the path seems to be confirmed.
2018-02-09 08:56:01 GMT <hi-ko> I'm not quite sure if the announcement is a good or bad news in long term. practical it may save Alfreso's as for the next 1-2 years
2018-02-09 08:59:55 GMT <hi-ko> I think is doesn't make sense to discuss the Open Source future since it is not our decision. In case they close the road we still have choice: switch to nuxeo or fund an organisation to hire afaust, jeff and others to continue CE only.
2018-02-09 09:00:56 GMT <fcorti> Possibly named: The Order of the Faust!
2018-02-09 09:01:00 GMT <fcorti> (grin)
2018-02-09 09:01:21 GMT <hi-ko> in every change there is a chance ;-)
2018-02-09 09:01:44 GMT <fcorti> I like this mood
2018-02-09 09:05:09 GMT * AFaust sees his IRC client flash due to a mention, checks it.... and quietly retreats back to his IDE...

2018-02-09 09:25:58 GMT <angelborroy> fcorti probably we can use now that Gartner report naming the Community as one of the 3 advantages of Alfresco ;-)
2018-02-09 09:26:50 GMT <fcorti> angelborroy if is it a public info somewhere, yes.
2018-02-09 09:28:46 GMT <fcorti> I know (and not only me) that Alfresco ecosystem is a STRENGTH in the market!
2018-02-09 09:29:11 GMT <fcorti> Partners, customers, developers in general know it!

2018-02-09 09:29:59 GMT <DarkStar1> Morning everyone
2018-02-09 09:30:33 GMT <DarkStar1> ~later tell douglascrp piiing....
2018-02-09 09:30:33 GMT <alfbot> DarkStar1: The operation succeeded.
2018-02-09 09:30:36 GMT <fcorti> angelborroy: ohhhhh yeah!
2018-02-09 09:32:13 GMT <Loftux> But alfresco is not a visionary, just niche player
2018-02-09 10:20:59 GMT <twen> good morning
2018-02-09 10:28:10 GMT <bmejias> morning twen, check the logs
2018-02-09 10:28:15 GMT <bmejias> interesting news going on
2018-02-09 10:30:06 GMT <bmejias> we might need to change the Order of the Bee by the Order of the Faust
2018-02-09 10:32:37 GMT <twen> Oh.. haa... acquisition by an equity firm...
2018-02-09 10:33:46 GMT <twen> an equity firm want money... it's its primary goal...
2018-02-09 10:34:30 GMT <twen> Could be good to inject money in the Company. But what about the Community version :-/ hum...
2018-02-09 10:47:17 GMT <Loftux> There will be changes. No one puts a lot of money in and just sit there, they do it because they see a potential. If that is is by downsizing, upsizing, change of management, cutting of product lines etc we will see.
2018-02-09 10:48:13 GMT <qwebirc83219> is it possible with the "bulk import" to set properties of a folder ?
2018-02-09 11:03:08 GMT <fcorti> Morning twen, the new owner confirmed that Open Source is still a positive differentiation on the market. If it will be confirmed (as it seems) the Community versions (Content and Activiti) won't change from the current path.
2018-02-09 11:04:37 GMT <twen> I hope this is a long term announcement :)
2018-02-09 11:05:39 GMT <Younes> Morning
2018-02-09 11:06:13 GMT <fcorti> well, I hope too!

2018-02-09 11:23:59 GMT <douglascrp> DarkStar1, pong
2018-02-09 11:24:02 GMT <douglascrp> morning everybody
2018-02-09 11:24:11 GMT <douglascrp> DarkStar1, what's up?
2018-02-09 11:24:30 GMT <DarkStar1> douglascrp: Hey dude
2018-02-09 11:27:17 GMT <qwebirc83219> has anyone ever used the bulk import in alfresco to set properties on folders? Based on the documentation it is possible only on "contents" but I do not see why it should be.
2018-02-09 11:51:23 GMT <bmejias> hi qwebirc83219, I've seen you have asked the question twice... unfortunately I have no idea on how to help you
2018-02-09 11:51:45 GMT <bmejias> just be patient and hopefully someone will be able to help you.
2018-02-09 12:06:42 GMT <yreg> qwebirc83219, it would also be worthwhile logging an issue in github and see if the owner of the project could help you
2018-02-09 12:19:46 GMT <AFaust> qwebirc83219: I haven't used it for that purpose but the code of the Alfresco-included bulk importer it supports metadata import on folders as well
2018-02-09 13:32:20 GMT <Leonix> It's since yesterday evening that I'm reading about THL acquisition. Yesterday I was more worried, today less. Hope to see some new marketing ideas in favour of medium sized firms
