And the fact that you choose to give it away is great. You deserve
cudos for making that choice. If others try to say that you should be
required to do that, it detracts from the choice you made. When I
stopped supporting javAPRS I did not make it open source, but I did
turn it over to Pete. That was my free will, I don't want to be forced
to do anything. When Roger knew he was terminal he made the decision
not to allow further development of UI-View. It might have been better
for APRS had he decided otherwise, but it was absolutely his right to
make that decision. I hate that some people see computer software as
something less real than a sailboat.
