Not everyone is an open source purist, stipulating that if it isn't GPL its not worth touching. We've all donated larges amounts of time and effort to companies such as when beta testing, the result of which they have gone on to commercially exploit without directly renumerating those contributors, so its not a huge difference to dontating source under such as licence as the above. If there is the opportunity to take RISC OS forward in ways which wont happen without open access to the source, and all we can do is bitch about the type of licence, then its time to walk away.
