No birthday party this year
Due mostly to the COVID-19 situation ProgClub will not be celebrating its birthday this year. Hopefully we can see everyone at the Christmas Party.
The copyright policy has been updated, particularly to more clearly cover contributions from non-members.
Let's go 2020!
Can you believe it's the year 2020!? We're totally living in the future now baby!
There has been a little activity at the club lately. We've release v1.0 of our new project administration software svnman. And we're just getting ready to migrate John's bugslist program from his personal project to ProgClub.
