"Ohh l,ots of people cry out for open source RISC OS, and just as it is made available, we get the GPL is this and GPL is that brigade coming out of the woodwork qande arguing about GPL rather than being positive about the OS at hand. "

Couldn't be further from the truth. GPL is a pervasive license, and it's crucial to be sure how such sources from Castle might interact with it and other similar licenses, and how this is going to be perceived outside the RISC OS world. Do you care to be in a position of distributing software that breaks licenses - I think not.
