Well...Philip has his story.  There are some obvious missing pieces in  his presentation.  Can't imagine they went missing on purpose, eh?

Let this shit die, please, let it die.

It's not worth rehashing. It's even a bit annoying. Ok, more than a bit.

Talli asks to let it die, and it should.

The fact is that based on what I have seen, the currently shipping OpenACS is far superior in terms of code quality, documentation, and robustness to anything aD ever shipped.

It is as out of place as bringing up Henry Ford's views on history or of WWII in a discussion of current Ford cars - irrelevant.

emotions aside I am an outisider, I have no feelings abot the story,
but are you trying to say that Henry Ford did not exist and the car was invented in 2004?
not very nice. especially that todays car still runs on old parts.
