It was clandestiningly been used before that, FWIW, and the autoconf config had been broken for quite a while. It so happened that in 2014 I was a little busy working on my artificial intelligence project and helping out with my grandchildren in Israel so I guess I missed the memo. Clearly it didn't land at that time. At one time it would only compile with imake. Its been a long time since ./config make make install worked cleanly. In the end, it only matters what the person doing the coding wants, but I would just point out that the autoconf has been dysfunctional for a long time and code base has been moved about different config systems a number of times and yes it does matter to me what license the build system is under. I would prefer strongly that the whole thing was locked up air tight in GPL3 -- So many immigrant groups have swept through our town that Brooklyn, like Atlantis, reaches mythological proportions in the mind of the world - RI Safir 1998 http://www.mrbrklyn.com DRM is THEFT - We are the STAKEHOLDERS - RI Safir 2002 http://www.nylxs.com - Leadership Development in Free Software http://www2.mrbrklyn.com/resources - Unpublished Archive http://www.coinhangout.com - coins! http://www.brooklyn-living.com Being so tracked is for FARM ANIMALS and and extermination camps, but incompatible with living as a free human being. -RI Safir 2013 _______________________________________________ crossfire mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mailman.metalforge.org/mailman/listinfo/crossfire
