[Sw-l] Open Sourcing SignPuddle 2

Hi SignWriting List,

I am currently in the process of open sourcing SignPuddle 2.

As we prepare for the server move later this year, I need to make two 
major changes to the SignPuddle 2 source code.  These changes are 
required to lower the burden of running SignPuddle 2 on the new server.

First, SignWriting images will use the TrueType fonts rather than image 
scripts.  Second, the backend will use a database rather than XML.

Right now, I have a decision I need to make.  Do I move forward with the 
changes and get it working as soon as possible?  Or do I upload all of 
the current code and add instructions for installing with the existing 
code before I start the modifications?  I would be interested in your 


PS - We are currently 60% of the way towards supporting the costs for 
new server hosting.  If you are financially able, consider joining our 
patreon campaign to support our work and ensure that the SignWriting 
websites continue to be available.
