Cubeia Poker no longer open source

We have decided to close the Cubeia Poker repository and no longer offer an AGPL version of Cubeia Poker.

One of the main reasons is that Cubeia Poker is getting more complex as a product. It is not your typical open source project, it is a fully integrated system rather than a library or tool. Right now Cubeia Poker in it’s minimal version includes a game server, an HTML5/Javascript client, about five web-services and two different databases (MySQL and MongoDB).

Additionally, it does take time and effort to make sure the open source repository stays updated and is not polluted with our other artifacts. Helping out the community, while rewarding on a personal level, also costs money and time. As a small company it is hard to justify this cost.

Lastly, we want to be able to take Cubeia Poker in a direction that is more closely integrated with our not-open sourced products (achievements, bonus-system etc.) and that would be very costly to do while still keeping an AGPL fork open and up to date.

So what will happen now?

The Cubeia Poker repository will be closed. We will not maintain any fork or similar open source repository of Cubeia Poker. All artifacts in our public Maven repository will still be available including the 1.0.0 release.

What about existing code I have checked out?

You are still allowed to use and work with the old AGPL source code as long as you still adhere to the AGPL license.

UPDATE 2014-05-26

We will make the AGPL repository publically available for a while longer. The AGPL repository now has a 1.0.0 version tagged that depends on stable external releases. This repository will be open for at least one week and after that we will close it again.
