This is a copy of my email to yalt:
I asked you twice about the sources of your mod. You didn't even bother to reply to me, which is kind of sad, considering I helped you with debugging it and you build on my work.


Indeed that is salt. It's how Yalt is.

This is kind of imaginary property slavery.

Hollywood mafia does it and they want money if you COPY their files (and watches them).

You want code if someone COPY your files (and changes them).

Not as bad, but still not perfect, this is why despite love for FOSS I would say it would be more correctly to not force Yalt (like sue Wink to do this.

But ofc if we can ask then sure,ask.

I therefore suggest that either the source is released or the copyright holders take appropriate action.


Imho appropriate action in retaliation for such breach is for the offended people to choke on a bucket of dicks Smile

Ofc. Yalt is an royal ass about this, but still doesn't mena we should go hollywood on him.

If we all grab hands, we might revive Tremulous - at least the RCZ server.

I think that we'd better push for levies on mass storage media…

Anyway, you misrepresent somewhat. What triggers the source-release clauses is the external distribution of the binaries: without that, no licence breach so no problem.

I think that your ‘perfect’ here is something like the 3-clause BSD licence.
