With respect that is to misread the piece - there is (to quote) 2GB of code the fact they are combing it to make sure there *is* no GPL code there is a good thing I would have thought. Additionally you have no way of knowing *when* (if any) GPL code was included was it (a). When Acorn had it (in which case ROL's version may also be "poisoned" in the same way) (b). When Pace had it or (c). When Castle had it.

Anyway overall the release sounds like a good plan and hopefully it will proceed as soon as is practicable.
