Right now I see at least THREE voices from Jewelbot themselves including yours.There is a saying that "Too many cooks spoil the broth".Not sure why most of the jewelbot team need to try speak as a crowd.And BTW I was NOT the first to suggest an alternative source for discussion.May I respectfully suggest you pick ONE member to speak on behalf of your team and stick with it.Just to satisfy my curiosity what Country is this jewelbot primarily based in and targeted towards.
Please be less suspicious, I think it is not that odd. I do not know jewelbot, but this is exactly how new things get momentum. And apparently jewelbot has allready a group of active users. Maybe that demograpic is or looks small but I recall in 2009 when I started reading this forum there were less than 100 visiters a day (now it are thousands). And Arduino started with a group less than 10. Partly with the goal to educate people and have fun. I see something similar with jewelbot.Best thing you can do if you want jewelbot embedded into the IDE is to raise an issue and explain your goals in github.com/arduino,or better make a pull request so it can be integrated without effort. After all it is open source. Be aware that it can (will ?) take plenty of time before reactions come.
