We should not open the NRS development, I think we MUST open it, this doesn't make any sense anymore. I hope the dev team can realize that very soon, having the new code open on github or bitbucket or what ever would allow all the third party devs to identify issues, propose fixes, create pull request, ask questions etc...

We need this in order to NXT to become more profesionnal

I disagree... there are far more people out there that want to steal the advances in NXT than want to help it.
Also the people qualified to contribute to code like this are rare..
If those people arise then I am sure through the TNSSE team an inner circle of platform contribitors will arise..

Also we need the developers concentrating on development not answering questions, reviewing other peoples code - unless we were to employ a community member to assist with this and then who is going to pay them?

Like I said before the code is not obfuscated, anyone can decompile an experimental release, this has happen ed before and on rare occasions when NXT was much simpler than it is today code improvements were suggested...

Anyone could have suggested improvements on 1.5.x code line which has been around for a while, to my knowledge no one has and there are in a public repository.

No the only people this kind of thing helps are the thieves and scammers as we saw before.

I believe that thieves and scammers can decompile an experimental release anyway, so is the point not to make it convenient for them ?

I do understand what you say about devs answering questions and reviewing other people code, in the current setup it is complicated as they have to focus on new features but this might be something to consider in the future, especialy if businesses running on AE starts to finance the devs ( as coinomat proposed today ).

I also agree that only a few people have the technical expertise to contribute, so why not add main 3rd parties developers to the NRS dev repo as watchers ? or give them the power to create pull requests ?  That could be done after a request from the 3rd party dev and the approval of the NRS dev, like when you request an API key on private API's ;)

NXT has owners — NXT Core team, which owns a domain nxt.org.

Not true, they don't own the domain. Stop posting lies and FUD!

In fact the 'e' releases are currently obfuscated so de-compiling them is not enough.
For 1.7.0e we are considering to open the source code for review immediately instead of waiting for a stable release.
Would this help ?

Will "git log" work on this release?

This is a step in the right direction, thanks, does it mean we would have access to the code of the experimental versions on the repo ?
