Hello NerdDinner People :)
I know that NerdDinner application was made and started as educational application to help the beginners to get started with ASP.Net MVC.
Now as the application went Open Source and few changes were made to it, in addition to the features/bug fixes that found or will find their way to it I wonder if the purpose of application changed or not.
Let me explain a bit. The application is still a simple and easy one, and still a nice code to browse and learn from for beginners, but also can be a base for a websites similar to nerddinner.com.
The current version of the application doesn't (out of the box) support the deployment on other than nerddinner.com wensite for different reasons; e.g. the hard-coded nerddinner.com references and the requirement of installing the application in the
root of the domain; i.e. somedomain.com and not somedomain.com/nerddinner.
What brought that to my mind is that I'm planning to use the application in a website I'm creating, and although the number of changes I need to do to make it work isn't high, I'm concerned about the maintenance effort later (updating to the latest version
and patching the application with the latest bug fixes) and the possibility of code conflicts.
My question is will you accept such changes that will make NerdDinner a "plug-and-play" application or is it a "take it or leave it" kind of application :)
