    Do you realise this comes from the source code from uBootstrap?

    Hi Justin,

    This source code come from uBootstrap .

    I think it is very nice you have created your own package and I agree that lot of people will find nice to have only the dotless viewer, but I also think you should acknowledge the fact you have forked it from another open source project.

    I do believe that sharing is caring, and recognizing the work of other developer in this very friendly umbraco community is a must have.

    I am sorry that I left off the attribution. I was planning on adding today and I just simply left it off on the documentation on accident. I added the ability to Add/Delete files from the tree as well. Maybe, if you would like, we could work together so that uBootstrap could use this as a dependency like ImageGen and the Fam Icons. 

    I really like the uBootstrap package and think you have some really clever things (especially the CDLoader.cshtml, which is genius). 

    Anyway, I will update the documentation shortly. I was really excited to get my first plugin out there so sorry for any problems.

    Hi Justin,

    Maybe you can add Jorge as a contributor. If you do that and someone votes for the project you both get karma. I think this only seems fair.

    Yeah, that's not so cool.

    Indeed, it's MIT licensed and you can do whatever you want with it, but you could've at least gotten in touch with Jorge out of common courtesy and you should definitely add him as a contributer, as most of the code is indeed contributed by him.

    @Jorge to make it easiest for Justin to add you as contributor, make sure to send a collab request:

    Well handled, guys! Great to see that you find a way out of something that could have been a mess, and well-excused @Justin. It takes courage to admit a fail.

    Thank you for the understanding. This is my first Umbraco package (and first open source at all) sorry for any blunders. Are there any wiki pages or a blog post about etiquette for posting packages or contribution? I found this one,-tips-for-creating-packages but it didn’t explain the attribution, adding contributors, or karma.

    @Jeroen, I didn’t realize karma was shared with contributors. That is a great idea. I just added Jorge as a contributor.

    @Sabastiaan, Good idea, I'll definitely get in touch with others first next time.

    If I am missing anything else please let me know. I have been using Umbraco for about 6 months now and the community here is awesome. I really want to make sure I can help out in any way that I can. If there is anything I can improve on let me know!
