OK, finally we have job offerings subforum which is slowly starting to be alive.

I consider the next step is a place for those who wish to team up developing some commercial apps. Imagine: a small U++ workgroup gets some task from customer and starts developing a package which customer refused to make BSD-licensed.

It will be very convenient for this workgroup to have their own place in U++ forum visible for them only. This will make forum even more useful for U++ development as it will cover non-opensource niche of U++ development.

There is also one more benefit. Older versions of commercial packages may be made opensource (at least partially) from time to time. And the fact it's development is coordinated in U++ forum will stimulate this process.

I am sorry, but I am afraid this is out of scope of this forum and project.

Sure, I see no problem with using U++ commarcially, I see no problem in using forum to hire people or even to publicly advice with any projects, but this website is dedicated to open-source project.

It is not even completely unlikely that I might participate is such activities. If I would, I would create separate infrastructure.

Mirek, no problem! Thank you for the reply.
Just was thinking of ways to spread U++ across more programmers/projects. As wide as possible.
