why to command of developers not to record for a long time system of modules and not to provide all exhaustive documentation on those modules which were removed from the official version? For Webmin there are many modules. If something is necessary - necessary the model simply is established (not through deb-packages). In what a problem to leave modules as they are and let the community finish them? The main thing to leave the unchangeable mechanism of connection of these modules.

I can understand those who love all in one solutions and 2 + years ago Zentyal was that.  Clearly this is no longer their goal/direction but instead they are headed towards more of an drop in specialty appliance.  If they are going to do something you would want them to do it well and consistently rather than try to package together something that is so/so. You cannot right now easily find a drop in AD/SAMBA based setup that is as easy to work with as Zentyal and for that I applaud them.

What I think probably could be done better on Zentyal's part is the communication/notification of their intent and map of modules to be modified over time.  If I knew now that in 8 months you were dropping the VPN module from Zentyal for instance I would plan accordingly rather than having it spurred on me at the last moment.

Either way, thank you for your efforts.

If so many people want the "gateway" version of Zentyal why not to "fork" it or support it some how. As i can see from zentyal git all the modules are in contrib repo and licensed under GPL v2

You are totally right, all our past work is in a public repo with a free licence, any person is encouraged to continue that work.

They should also keep the Firewall module + Network, if we're really going to use Zentyal as PDC need to take control of the network and DNS.

??? Those modules are still there.

PPPoE? Ethernet Failover? Ethernet Bonding?

Not really....

That functionality is related with a gateway server, we are not going that direction anymore.

Personally, I doubt that bonding is strictly related to the "gateway server".
Those options could be very useful even if we're not using Zentyal as gateway
Maybe just PPPoE... but even this could be used as a back-up connection...

What's wrong with keeping on those options?

I am gutted.

I have just moved job and my first task was to recommend Zentyal to replace their existing Windows network. It now looks like it is losing the ability to be an all-in-one Windows Server replacement.

don't panic also not crying!
the team of developers does that can, proceeding from the budget.
many of us bought from them a subscription and brought a donation?
command line in Linux nobody cancelled.
take remote modules from contrib and use further!

Zentyal staff wrote a Howto for
Building and maintaining a contrib Zentyal module
( last modified on 4 August 2014)

I think the Zentyal Team has the focus now on stability and a better openchange implementation.
.....whether my users use outlook or not ;)

Zentyal is a magnificent alternative operating system

Applause to all involved in it

Thanks

Or, looking for an alternative!
