I quote from a Mandrake spec for DotGNU Portable .NET:

Name:           pnet
Version:        0.3.8
Release:        1mdk
Summary:        A portable interpreter for .NET plateform binaries
Group:          Development/Other
License:        GPL
Buildrequires:  treecc >= 0.1.0
Buildroot:      %_tmppath/%name-%version-buildroot

The primary goal of this project is to build a stable and portable
interpreter for .NET platform binaries, together with a suite of open
source tools to build .NET applications. The initial target platform
is Linux, with other platforms to follow in the future.

Now, since pnet is a GNU project, *and* Southern Storm says `free software' not `open source', would it be appropriate to tell the spec writers to change that annoying `bug'?

It read like a socialist polemic, but I saw something different. I
saw a business plan in disguise.
