Things are heating up on the Mamboserver forums. I was able to copy this text posted by Martin Brampton, former Mambo Foundation member, before it was deleted.
I just set up a page that displays the pageview statistics of the five major open source CMS solutions: Drupal, Joomla, Mambo, Xoops and Typo3. As you can guess from the small thumbnail here, a couple of them are standing out from the rest of the pack. Check out CMS War! to see how your favourite is doing. In the near future I will be adding forum statistics from as many of these as possible too, so stay tuned.
It seems like the Mambo Foundation does not own the Mambo Trademarks after all. Mambo Communities Pty Ltd, the original owner of the Mambo forums, help site, development forge, the domain names and the new Mambo Developer Network, has been sold off by Peter Lamont to Ansearch Ltd, an Australian search engine and online media company. This was four months after Miro International Pty Ltd announced that it had transferred the intellectual property it held in Mambo to the Mambo Foundation. Subsequently, member of the Mambo Foundation Board, Martin Brampton, resigned from his position with immediate effect due to what “having become aware that the Board is acting unlawfully”.
