Mozilla has a long history with Etherpad, as shown on etherpad.org:
It would seem a shame to ditch it now in favour of something ghastly like Google Docs. I can only assume there isn’t an official project to make Etherpad Lite more match our needs, because if there was I expect there would have been a much smoother transition from the old Etherpad. That leaves this project down to the community.
So, what’s missing from the old Etherpad which we need/want in Etherpad Lite ?
I’ve heard a reasonable amount of pining for the teams feature of the old Etherpad. From what I can remember, teams offered:
- A unique namespace
- A list of pads and recently edited pads
- Privacy control (public/team/private)
Is there anything I’ve forgotten? Have I got something wrong?
Is there a need for teams anymore? Or is an ability to lock pads down to public/vouched/nda/private all we need?
