I am well aware of where I am, and I assure you, that I would have
prefered to never have to discuss this topic here.

However, I was invited to this discussion, and asked this particular
question.  I answered it by courtesy, and I do not think that I
deserve blame for an answer which you do not like.

I am glad for your contribution, Sebastian, but it is still troublesome if the code is not GPL. I hope you do not mind me saying that. It is just a matter of fact, nothing personal at all! ;-)

We have had a similar situation with php-mode. A lot of contributors and we could not get every one to sign their contributions. It took me a long time to try to get the people to sign and in the end I simply gave up. My conclusion was that I could have been writing a much php-mode in much less time than I used trying to fix this. However after this I did not find time to do it any more.

And I do not have time to contribute now. Not even to discus, really. ;-)

I write this to you just to tell you that it is not a small problem. My best wishes otherwise, and again thanks for contributing!
