Ack, I had a syntax era in my message board code, so things went a bit weird yesterday. Should all be OK now.

I don't buy it. I think it's OK to rescue orphaned projects and place them on something central like riscos.info, and it's OK for riscos.info to mirror a project if the source/binary licensing allows. But in the case of ArcEm, the source wasn't lost or orphaned - it was readily available from sf.net; there's little reason to close that down - unless the project as a group consented to it. Mirror or link to it, sure.

it's not quite the same, but, as a similar example, I couldn't imagine TIB copying the contents of the drobe.co.uk sub-domains onto its own server and then urging drobe users to remove said content from drobe.co.uk.

All IMHO.

I thought it was hilarious; it helps to have great characters like Sir Clive and Hermann Hauser to stir things up.

I don't mind doing the odd special feature from time to time, when the right opportunity arises, but I just can't find the time or energy to do day-today RISC OS news, sorry..

So what's the real reason behind Peter Naulls trying to close down the ArcEm project on sourceforge and file the source away on his own personal website?

Luckily, no one agrees with him (including the other project admin): [link] [link]
