Re: [Condor-users] Who do I write for the source code?

Licensure using the Apache 2.0 does not necessitate source code
disclosure. It's true they're talking about preparing the code base but they haven't yet, nor are they obligated to just because they've adopted
the Apache License. The license puts obligations on people using your
software only.

Really? This doesn't sound kosher to me at all. Am I the only OS proponent that thinks this is BS?


2. Source Code
The program must include source code, and must allow distribution in source code as well as compiled form. Where some form of a product is not distributed with source code, there must be a well-publicized means of obtaining the source code for no more than a reasonable reproduction cost preferably, downloading via the Internet without charge. The source code must be the preferred form in which a programmer would modify the program. Deliberately obfuscated source code is not allowed. Intermediate forms such as the output of a preprocessor or translator are not allowed.

Maybe somebody in the Condor team could chime in, but it sounds to me like they're in breach of their own license.
