Please Johannes,

   No-one has suggested that Fabrice should work for nothing; that was not a fair comment at all.  Many people on this list (myself included) have in fact offered finance to see the accelerator module GPL'ed (if that is possible).  The question Anand asked is eminently reasonable and for perfectly practical reasons it needs to be resolved one way or the other (e.g. if the accel module must be hosted elsewhere, would it be best to move the whole project so everything stays in one place?).  An equally unfair counter-question would be 'is it fair to use freely provided hosting that cost other people real money and break their TOS?'

    I for one am happy to see the existence of this module in any form at all, but that doesn't mean that certain practical matters can be ignored.  In fact, the Wine project just recently grappled with the same issue with (IIRC) Microsoft's DCOM redistributable and their sourceforge hosting.  In the end they now host it elsewhere.  Perhaps Fabrice could get an exception from the Savannah team if they are asked?

Many regards,
Darryl Dixon

Is it really fair to expect others to work for nothing at all?
