News"Just open-source it" is not realistic Pin
Terrence Dorsey7-Jul-13 8:57
staffTerrence Dorsey7-Jul-13 8:57 
I've received a couple of questions about fred following the failure of the kickstarter to fund it as open source yesterday.... The big one is: "why don't you just open-source it as-is?". My answer is: it's not that simple, and it wouldn't help anyone as-is. I am not willing to just cut this all loose to the world. It represents a non-trivial amount of work, and why would I undercut my own ability to license it appropriately? Seriously, how can you possibly justify that? It would be one thing if I was riding a train of fat paychecks from some "day job", but I'm not. This is what pays my bills, and I'm not giving it up for free.
The amount of work needed to open source a project is often non-trivial... and not free.
