Sorry about the digest thing. I had thought I specifically avoided
signing on to the digest version. Dual bad.

Just in general terms, not necessarily Ardour

All of the above (in the digest version) sounds pretty fair and
polite. Asking a commercial developer to give a little back is a great
idea. The code stays in the public domain and maybe the original
developer can actually get a paycheck.

A related if reverse scenario. SuperCollider, the object oriented
audio programming environment was commercial and run by one man. Apple
gave him a job (about the time they bought Logic) and he made
Supercollider opensource. Even gave people that bought it for the
previous few months their money back. Pretty cool.


P.S. IS this off-topic?
