I guess I better ask now. What relationship does this tree have with
Andrew Choi's code?
It is his code. We (mostly Stephen) had discussions with him about merging
it, which foundered when at least one file which he declared entirely public
domain was (as far as can be worked out) derived from a GPLed file. We don’t
have any objection to public domain code, but code that contravenes the GPL
He's made it very clear to me that he has no wish to make his
patch GPL. Of course I do not believe that is within his legal rights
in the US,
as a Public Domain license just means you can take the code, put your name
on it and change it to any license you want.
He’s in Canada.
But I'd rather not go there and we are forbidden from taking
code, so please clarify.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Andrew Choi's work is a derivative work of XEmacs and
clearly GPL, but he's not being reasonable. Can we flush his code out of
Carbon XEmacs like we did with Gosling in the long distant past?
Sure, if we had the manpower, porting the GNU Carbon code (which he also
wrote) would be entirely doable. We don’t.
I'm downloading and building your tree and will see what it looks
like as I
