Well, I won't argue that the content isn't *that* complete, but there
is a page, and a forum:


There are a number of reasons not to go into great detail here.
Suffice to say the conflicts are both personal and technical in
nature, and those of us on the Torc side of the fence don't want to
provoke a conflict or a "he said, she said" type of situation.  One of
the primary reasons for the fork is to leave behind exactly those
kinds of things.  I am/we are happy to try to address some of the
questions and concerns on the Torc forum, in the Torc IRC channels, or
any other place where I can be pretty sure it won't elicit a flamewar
or out of proportion response.  For purposes of this mailing list I'd
rather just address the technical questions as they pertain to using
Torc for iOS as a MythTV client.
