Sorry. I am only a user, I stumbled into that confusion after finding the program(s), first not knowing that I didn’t use the seamly-branch, then it took a while for me to realize it. Especially as I am very sure that @dismine read here at the time I found this bug I do not see a problem to have posted it even for the other branch here.
I don’t know why he is hiding but that’s not my problem. My problem is a layout that is not usable the way it is for the parameters I need. Unfortunately I do not code in C++, so I can’t just have a look at the code and fix it.
Tell me, what is the original engineering? Who exactly is responsible for the original engineering?
As far as I see it, there is a program, there is a group of developers, maintainers and helpers and they have split. On a split there is always some aftermath. If you are not happy here, meanwhile I found that other forum for the fork that has still the name Valentina. It is not very easy to find, but it is possible, you could do it, too.
I prefer a pretty stable code over one changing every week, bringing new bugs for getting new features. Yes, I know, I shouldn’t take the developer-repository; but in the past I had, on other programs, good experiences, so what. I downgraded and I’ll wait and look. And than I still can choose the program that is better in the future, as both is open source. At least Seamly2D is registered under GPL 3 according to launchpad.
