View Full Version : Extjs 3.x public repository?

4 Mar 2014, 8:38 AM
Why is there no public repository with Extjs 3.x? The support from Sencha is diminishing, updates are rare, especially if I'm not a premium subscriber. Did everyone go to Ext 4.x?
Do the license terms prevent us from making a public repository with Extjs 3 code? All the fixes and bugs could be commited by end-users in such a public repository and everyone could take advantage of the updated code. Actually the GPLed version requires us to publish back our changes, but how to do that if there is no repository? I had to modify my library code to allow for i18n and to recognize the new IE11. I'd be happy to share my code and I guess many other people would do that too. It'd be also much easier to publish our extensions - code posted here, on the forums is often scattered over many posts.
What do you think? Is it a good idea?

ps. i've just found https://code.google.com/p/extjs-public/ but it looks like the aim of this repo is to have only the latest official code - without community updates.

EDIT: just found this thread: http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?200033-Public-ExtJS-github-repository!/ (http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?200033-Public-ExtJS-github-repository!/page2) So it's been discussed 101 times now. In that case my question boils down to: "Do the license terms prevent us from making a public repository with Extjs 3.x code?" Can someone from the Sencha team clarify it?

There will not be a public repo from Sencha. We are supporting it for a year after Ext JS 5 GA is released but after that it will not be supported.

Sure, there will be no public repo from Sencha - that's clear. OK.

By supporting 1 year - you're talking about supporting Ext 3.x for 1 year, right?

But my primary question (still unanswered) was: can someone (I, for example) make a public repository with Ext 3.x? Do you have anything against it?

I cannot speak officially and I'm not a lawyer to give legal advice but it would depend on the wording in the license.
