This email to is to formally request that you make Xwidget engine open source.

Can you please take this action in order to keep "your baby" alive.

At the moment it is dying. The site has malware warnings from all the major browsers and some anti-virus engines. There are multiple copies of the old installation circulating with the bundled malware.

Someone needs to take all this in hand and to start the whole Xwidget scene from scratch.

If the engine becomes open source and you can hand the management of the Xwidget domain over then we can see what we need to do to fund the hosting via donation and then in time we can restart coding using volunteers.

Your engine is the last Javascript widget engine and without your support it WILL die.

My suggestion is that you put the source code on sourceforge and then allow us to build a new website on the existing domain. We will retain the gallery of course. We can then look at the hosting bandwidth and costs and see what can be done to contact all the major browsers to prove that the malware is no longer contained within Xwidget downloads.

The first step is to declare yourself on our side and to do so on the website forum. Then you can become the founder of the Xwidget group that controls the Xwidget engine. As the founder you can then keep Xwidget as "your baby" and see how the community takes off. It will take a while but it will be worth it as Xwidgets is very important being the only remaining RAD widget tool.

Please get in contact with myself or Jim King, I am sure there is enough of a community to take XWidget forward.

I hope you understand that my actions are in support of "your baby" - it is too good to die and I see it dying the way that the yahoo widget and other engines all died.
