Step after step…

So, I promised I’d try to keep you more informed from now on. Therefore I just want to publish a short note that we are going on with open-sourcing at the moment.

What has been accomplished up to now? Well. First: all websites and domains have been transferred to a server of mine, all is up and running (blog, website, forum).

Second, I started reviewing the code and libraries we used. It looks quite promising that we will be able to publish most of it under an open-source license. I am currently reviewing and investigating how to treat the situation where one cannot release some libraries under open-source but release the rest. I already contacted the FSF, but I hardly suspect they’ll write back because they for sure get lots and lots of such inquires and most of it should be covered by their FAQs and other documentation (remaining one problem: I am not a lawyer…).
