this is the advantage of FLOSS. In the long run there will be something
similar to biological evolution. Today proprietary software for
minorities often has a better quality, because the evolution for FLOSS
still is in the opening stage. In the long run there will be real
evolution, money won't matter, while for proprietary software progress
always will depend on money and robbery.
You aren't a robber if you will make your FLOSS source code public,
because it depends on FLOSS source code. This is the idea of FLOSS, it's
Discussions on LMMS devel and LAD were because of people using FLOSS
code for their own software, while they released the software without
the changed source code and this in combination with commercial
interests. Not only straight for money, if a professor does it for his
own reputation, it implied an money issue.
Even if they unmeant violated the GPL, because of their commercial
backrounds a lot of people were pissed.
If you ever should unmeant violate the GPL nobody will damn you.
Hopefully you don't be afraid of this. And btw. I don't think that you
even would unmeant violate the GPL by anything you will do.
There very seldom is trouble because of GPL issues on audio lists and I
never heard of trouble, because someone like you just used open source
code and published changed code to audio lists. To the contrary those
coders always were welcome.
Post it to the list, if you like to do that!
