Hi MJ,

Now, I understand your position, and I agree with you. Affero GPL is not 
perfect but can serve us temporally.

I hope so too. We could move to MIT/Expat, but later.

Good point, MJ!.

Previous versions of the webapp offered source download from the home page. 
However after we moved the CVS to Savannah we removed that link. I have added 
it again at [1]. I have added a cronjob which update it each 30 minutes.

Interesting. I hope GPL v3 be released soon, so we can relicense.

No problem. It is welcome.
Just curious, what software do you use to realize the backlog?.

P.S.: Can the 'English country' problem be fixed?.

As usual, let me know anything must be fixed.
