First of all, let me clarify English is my second language, maybe that's why my manner seemed so hard. Furthermore, it is quite difficult for us to speak fluently with you. If I offended anybody, I apologize.
As I already said very often, I explained our intention has always been to be compliant with all licenses. This is widely proved by the fact that SourceForge hosts all sources of programs we distribute with winPenPack suites. winPenPack 3.6 https://sourceforge.net/projects/winpen ... urces/3.6/
(163 Items - programs + launchers), winPenPack 4.0 https://sourceforge.net/projects/winpen ... /Programs/
(programs) https://sourceforge.net/projects/winpen ... Launchers/
(launchers), our repository http://winpenpack.svn.sourceforge.net/v ... inpenpack/
(approximately 350 X-Software + winPenPack Menu + X-Launcher + Our utilities). Anyway, by our oversight, LibreOffice source code (the sources of ONE program, against a huge number of items correctly inserted) was missed, but at least a link to them was present. Now also the LibreOffice sources are directly available.
IMHO, the main point is instead another. I had the feeling JohnTHaller, having no other valid argument and absolutely wanting to find something wrong or not legal in our project, is pointing out, once again, to any our smallest deficiency. We too, if wishing, could be able to search and maybe find, something not in compliance in PA project (Google Trademarks policy, for example?). Anyway I think will be the Owner's responsibility to notify any possible issue, not mine. Another example: JohnTHaller told us that all PA sources of PortableApps.com are easy to find. I could say that it "seems" OpenOffice.org source code is not available (the truth is, from this page, http://portableapps.com/apps/office/ope ... ad_details
sourcecode link points to http://sourceforge.net/projects/portabl ... 0Portable/
). But, obviously, I know this forum is not the right place to discuss anything in order to discredit PortableApps.com.
I'm pretty sure in our project there are many things can be improved. But we wish that all possible suggestions or warnings could be reported directly to us, and not on a "third party" forum. And if anyone really wants to help us here, could report possible issues via private messages or e-mail, not by reporting "off-topics" in a technical discussion like this. My personal thought is everyone should take care of his project, eventually using energy and time to fight against projects that really (not "seem to") violates licenses and trademarks (such http://portableappz
.com/). Why no problems at all about that?
In addition, I think, just because "someone" is affirming it, is unfair to assume, without really check our sources folders, that winPenPack is not following licenses and not hosting source code. As already said, we try to do our best to respect them. Further, currently we are better reorganizing our SourceForge distribution, to avoid this kind of complaint from anyone.
Said that, if we are still welcome in this forum, although for us it is really challenging and difficult to speak and write fluently with you, we'd love to have a minimum of trust and consideration, and not to be attacked every time for any slightest issue, or because someone thinks we violating licenses and trademarks. This is the kind of dialog that we would have with everyone.
