FGMEMBERS' version of Heiko's aircraft

Hi Skybike! For this aircraft, we should be documenting the FGAddon version of the aircraft from Emmanuel Baranger (the Helijah hangar). All 245+ aircraft from Emmanuel are actively developed. Note that the FGMEMBERS developments of other people's aircraft, often strongly against the original author's wishes, are not welcome on the official infrastructure. The FGMEMBERS concept was comprehensively rejected by the FlightGear community, and they have been invited to document their aircraft on their own infrastructure.

Oh- You are right. I didn't know that and never wanted to insult Emmanuel Baranger or someone else. This seems to be the disadvantage of OpenSource. Thank you Bugman, I'll be more careful next time.

No problems. I noticed the Gmane link is currently down, so here is the SourceForge thread for reference: [Flightgear-devel] Draft FGMEMBERS statement (web archive. The wiki should be primarily about documenting the official project (for aircraft that is FGAddon), followed by the 3rd party hangars. FGMEMBERS is a special case as it's primary aim is to replace FGAddon and the 3rd party hangars, hence it is simply not welcome.
Heiko, I didn't know that you were the primary author (I just changed the title of this section). I'll delete the unneeded devel-hangar parameter in Boeing 727-230/info then.

Edward, No problem, it was made in a time were things wasn't clearly stated as today. Maybe time to create my own logo! ;-)

I just didn't check the *-set.xml file before the edits and writing this section. The main point for the development hangar link is to direct potential contributors to the place upstream where they should be contributing, to help foster team development. An author link using {{usr}} could work too. Or any of the devel-* parameters. If you are interested in this for your aircraft, feel free to add to {{hangar banner}} and {{infobox aircraft}}, though I know many original authors don't particularly care about this.

I don't have an own hangar anymore. Those aircraft who are quite far in process will be found on FGAddon, or GITHub or GITLab. So an author link should be enough.
