Correct I was the founder of this project.
The name Cotonti, was chosen through complete randomness, Lombi was just spurting out randomly typed names. I finally found one I liked which was Cotonti. After a little googling we found nothing had such a name, and so I decided upon that name.
This project orginally started to and was going to code a new CMS similar and comapatible with Seditio, So we could release it. This of course was a difficult to thing to do, and I didn't get to much done. Later it was proposed to go a different direction, and the project you see today is what was started. That is when Trustmaster and the others joined.
Trustmaster was talked to with about the project orginally but he didn't join at the start. Due to we wanted to try to start from scratch back then. He later joined after discussion and wrote up some nice formal proposal. And then he got really most or all of the team you see together, due to his various/many contacts.
Lombi's part started as willingness and support for an idea like this. Later he was able to convince Oliver into letting us release our project. That was the big part Lombi was able to play.
So Thats the story, the real story of how things came to be and was played out, I founded and created this project. Even if I notice most don't realize or know that, thats ok. I don't consider myself a sole leader of the project. Its more of a co-leadership Between Trustmaster and Myself. We often discuss things and work it out and come to a conclusion we both agree upon. We of course have disagreements but we always work out whatever we need to :)
