May be I the only one to notice the :)  which I have problem to understand 
since for me it announces that COG may not be open-source.
What would help teleplace to believe that open-sourcing it would be a win-win 
        A bigger community of contributors ?
        Making sure that the truck factor does not touch them in case elliot is 
called under other horizons?

Now there is a bootstrap problem. How can a community show that an open-source 
model is better than a closed one, if the 
software is closed?
