It was June 2010 when I published the first release of abap2xlsx.
Thanks to this community, the project grew up quickly and acquired a lot of popularity…
I always loved open source approach, but in SAP this was not so easy to achieve. ABAP is a proprietary language and it had always some limitation in code sharing, but fortunately Code Exchange was born and the community found the pleasure of collaborating together in a project.
Just in time for the SAPTechEd Bangalore, the New Unified Developer Licence was released (read this blog Announcing the unified SAP Developer License by Juergen Schmerder and watch SAP Live Interview with Abesh Bhattacharjee, Arshit K and Marek Kowalkiewicz) and it gives you the freedom to choose your licence and share YOUR code using whatever channel you prefer
What a great opportunity… GITHub I’m coming…
So today I decided to migrate abap2xlsx from Assembla to GITHub… I hope that this decision will give more visibility to the project and also simplify the collaboration between us in order to easily contribute.
Currently all the revisions’ history and issues (unfortunately with my username) have been migrated.
Unfortunately, Assembla doesn’t offer an easy way to export discussions, so I’m considering to collect the best discussions in the GITHub wiki. It will be very long work (looking for volunteers).
In order to better manage discussions, I decided to use Code Exchange discussion board as the official channel for help requests, suggestions and so on…
More information on how to collaborate on the project will come soon… Stay tuned!
So what is missing? The new address
