My company has converted sitefinity to use a web application project, and we periodically update our "template" every time they come out with and upgrade.
For a long time I have wanted to share this with the community, but i'm constrained by management. We've been wanting to put together some kind of partnership with Telerik where we share our code, experiences, modules, bug fixes and insight, and they share the source code to their modules and sitefinity itself. However, the only thing that Telerik has for this is a parntership that you have to buy, which is prohibitively expensive to us and gives little real benefit.
So for now, my hands are tied due politics. If telerik would be more open to partnerships (and open to sharing source code in general) then I could share the conversion and other things. I like sitefinity and telerik in general, but right now they give no incentive for our company to share anything with them as we're nothing more right now than a customer. And I kind of understand where my manager is coming from--our intellectual property has value to us, same as Telerik's is to them. Why should we pay for their code but yet give them our code for free?
Just food for thought.
