Re- Virtual Acorn "Firstly I am sadened that RISCOS Open declined RISCOS Ltd's offer to fully disclose all of the paperwork (including the ROL/E14 agreement). In my opinion this would have settled the matter once and for all"
Whilst not taking sides on any of your other comments and those of others I can't see why you expect ROOL to disclose the paperwork when surely it is Castle Technology who need to do that as ROOL are only hosting the RO5 sources on behalf of Castle.
Also as ROOL and ROL seem to have stated previouslyy that they have a good working relationship then surely you should leave them out this dispute, which is none of their making.
This is the season of good will and perhaps one or two people from both factions should start to spread a little of it around and start talking constructively.
