Trillr project member Stefan Aust admits the code base is "kind of crappy" as it stands now, but that's to be expected since it was part of a learning process. He says that, looking back, he would have done some things differently but notes, "perfect source code does not create communities. Our source code can."
Trillr was released under the BSD license, and Aust says now that the project has ended " this is our gift to the world in general and our operations department in particular which gratefully volunteered to continue to operate CoreMedia's Trillr instance. You'll keep the flame, guys."
