Follow-up Comment #4, task #4589 (project administration):
| Some "hacked" DVB crypto algorithms
Are these algorithms free available, so that everybody is allowed to have a
look at them and changed them?
| applications under windows
We only host projects that can run on a free operating system (such as
We have adopted this policy because now that completely free operating
systems exist, we do not want to encourage users of those systems to start
using proprietary operating
systems so that they can use your program.
If you are willing to maintain a version for free operating systems, which
work as well as or better than other ports, you can then provide versions for
non-free systems as well.
The idea is that at no point should only-free users be at a disadvantage
compared to users
of proprietary software.
Your project should always work equally well in free systems as in any other
version you provide; if you have some modules for non-free systems, you can
delay their release until you have released the free operating system
Can you clarify this point?
| It is free but not open source
Then why do you choose the name "Open Source CAM Emulator"?
And note that Savannah supports projects of the Free Software movement, not
projects of the Open Source movement (see my previous mails).
At last, if we could have a look at your source code, it would be great. :-)
