... steal the name.

No one is "stealing" anything. And your attitude is preposterous and illogical.

S'funny, till now I had you down as a open source advocate; not an "ownership is everything" troll.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?

    Open source is about giving, and accepting what you get. It isn't about taking or demanding.

    If an author of a module doesn't reply to you in a time frame that's acceptable to you, too bad for you. (Sh/H)e donated to original code, and not someone else. I think it nothing to be decency to accept the gift as is, and, if I think I can do it better I can publish something else (if I'm lucky, the license allows me to reuse code).

    I don't give a rats ass what you think of me.
