Much has been said about the SugarCRM Open Source project and SugarCRM's apparent decision to abandon development of Community Edition.

We, the community developers, unanimously believe:

An open source project is about people producing free and open software and contributing to something as a team for the benefit of others.
Open source projects reflect the spirit of collaboration while garnering community feedback and providing good governance that allows for business to confidently invest in its development.
Open source projects are open to the participation of anybody who can contribute value and is willing to work with the community.

We, the community development team, have serious concerns about SugarCRM and its relationship to the community. We believe the future of SugarCRM Community Edition is bright and it should be controlled by the demands of its users and the abilities of its developers.

We, the community, have no voice in its government or the future direction of SugarCRM.

What we will do: We will continue to develop and improve a version of this award-winning software project currently released under an Open Source Licence License. We wish SugarCRM well and regret that we are not able to work with them.

We will retain a Law Center to advise us in this matter and will release more information about our short-term plan in the near future.

We invite all SugarCRM Community Edition developers to add their names to this or to contact us privately.
