We were actually talking about this today.
So, here is our plan:
Team Robot is going to block out Monday and Tuesday next week to work on SWTOR. We have to update the talent calculators and make adaptive armor work, at a minimum. We will give folks an update after that on how things are going - we really are not sure how hard/easy it will be to update, since we don't know if our extraction tools will even work anymore on the new expansion.
The idea here is to meet the community using our site halfway - we don't make money on the site at all, we run it at a loss, but, we think the site is really high quality and don't want to leave people hanging, especially since SWTOR still has no armory besides our site. The game community around SWTOR just isn't that large, unfortunately. We are willing to invest a couple of days of development time from our whole team and set it up such that users can keep the item data up to date. We have no idea if users will actually update the item data or not, but hopefully they will. We will post details on how that all works when we set it up next week.
Doing a partially open-sourced project will be new for us, so we can't promise the experiment will work - but we want to give it a shot.
We will have to disable the combat log parsing - people can look at old logs, but we won't be accepting new logs for 2.0, since we don't have time to update all the parsing code.
