I, like you, am not interested in opening controversies. As an outside observer, I am just thinking about the systems issues.
It seems to me that even under the auspices of the Church, where the architecture of HT/VT in MLS and in central databases at CHQ, and the inputs and outputs to MLS, might be on the table, integration of a grass-roots reporting tool will be a daunting problem to solve for the new development project. Without opportunity for integration, due to policy, any outside application such as ReturnAndReport is inherently disadvantaged even further.
Going forward, the details of the integration issues themselves are probably better explored in the new collaborative venues being created for the new project.
None of this is meant as a criticism of how you designed ReturnAndReport. BTW, while the new system is developed, do I understand correctly that you are continuing to support the site? Coincidentally, I had just referred links to your site to our HPGL and EQP when the announcement of the new project was made.
