I would like to aware the developers that negotioations may not have been
I had an conversation with Gabucino on irc and I'm very upset of the matter
of negotiations. I'm even upset that very few developers new that there are
any negotiations at all.
In summary the negotiation look this way: "We give you $2500 and you forgot
about it. We will rewrite our code."
The code under question is not identified, nor the copyright holders.
I'm afraid what the rest of comunnity will say about this kind of agreement.
I would like all developers that think their code may have been stolen to
take a side in this "agreement"
I personally have send a letter ot KiSS informing them that I would like
to get the source of "their" subtitle reader and to find out is there
any my code. And I definitly haven't given right to gabucino to represent
