The unanswered question for me is the following: it might well be that relicencing of parts of RISC OS is not easy or even not allowed (I heard much the same from a variety of people). But is there a need to relicence? The real question is whether there is a restriction on the group of people allowed to see and change the source. One could think of various "pseudo open source" arrangements like Castle operating a CVS server, people who want to have access have to apply and are given the status of a Castle employee.

Also, licencing could be the same as it is now, with vastly reduced prices. As Jack put it: "a small royalty". I doubt that the licencing restrictions on most of RISC OS would preclude an arrangement like this.
