I can't speak for the entire Montreal community as i'm not a  
developper in ile sans fil. I'm in charge of operation (like Bruno  
does in Quebec). I think the people usually consider wifidog gateway  
and wifidog CMS as 2 different product. They've been develop in very  
different condition with different need. In montreal, we ear about  
changing the content management system for something like drupal or  
even wordpress (i've heard that drupal start when wordpress end).

Maybe using the wiki to brainstorm the new feature that we would like  
to see in V2.0 could be more interesting that talking about fork.
