1. Info updates for the Final Award Poll
Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
Since of lack of time I haven't had the proper time to include all the proper information within the poll, such as author names and companies. But, this will ofcourse be posted. Some of the applications might be rather unknown for some and very know for others, so if you have any good url with more information to any of the applications; please post it here so we can update the poll with the info!

Thanks in advance!

Project Everblue has been developed by a number of people from all over the world. Some of the Major contributors would be:

Antony Curtis (UK)
Sebastian Wittmeier (Germany)
and myself, Brian Smith (USA)

You may just want to list it as from Netlabs.

Thanks.

Brian

In the Annual Award nominee list you have

CDRecord/2
(Chris Wohlgemuth, Germany)

Please notice that CDRecord/2 is actively developed by Nick Lepehin <nickk@nm.ru> as a part of his famous CDRTools/2 port http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/cgi-bin/h-search?key=cdrtools
He continuously compiles new versions, fixes bugs, and makes them available from hobbes (new versions come almost weekly). He spends much his efforts and time to support that ports.
At the same time, Chris Wohlgemuth makes only occasional releases.

So please add Nick Lepehin to the nominee list as well. Mention Chris Wohlgemuth alone is VERY UNFAIR.

I agree with Inept, Nick Lepehin's version of cdrecord/2 is so much better than Chris W's, and Nick is the only one actively maintaining the package.

Hi,

as much as I like your awards ceremony, I have to say that I find it highly questionable that you list the WarpVision project which violates the (L)GPL with their WVGUI in your nominees list!

Peter.

P.S.: For ZeroToaster::MTA should you not list Bernd Hohmann as the author?!

I didn't say that WV is bad, in fact I very much liked to use it until I discovered that they do not honor the licences of the software they built it on.
But illegitimate software should have no place in OS/2 World award nominess because that would reflect badly on the OS/2 and eCS community!

Please name GPL project, which is a part of WV...

WV based on the FFMPEG project, which is covered by LGPL.
WV authors actively contribute into FFMPEG (by sending patches and bugfixes). LGPL allow inclusion of covered code into closed-source projects, so where you found any violation?

I did not choose the nominations. These were submitted by people who sent them in. The lists of 5 per group were taken from those that were nominated the most. There was a limit of 5 per group. If you dislike any nomination, vote for the one you do.

From your own webpage:

"WarpVision uses some code from many different GPL projects, including mplayer (libmpdemux, mp3lib), ffmpeg (extremely fast DivX/MPEG), xine (some stuff for gamma correction), liba52, mpeg2dec (libmpeg2) and Andy Zabolotny's libraries (libdart and libdive)."

Yes dink, I know that _you_ do not care for licenses...

I don't see any mention of the CVS on the webpage, but I knew this and even have successfully compiled WVCLI from those sources.

But WVGUI is still illegitimately using GPL material by not opening the source. And if WVGUI only contains LGPL sources they still have to distribute the diffs to those sources and the LGPL license as a minimum _with WVGUI_.

Vlad, I do not mean that you do not deserve to win because your programs are bad. You have done great work with your own programming (porting and combining the various open source projects) as far as I can assess that!
I just say that by allowing your project to be nominated (even worse if it wins) the OS/2 community outs itself to be a bunch of unlawful people. And I do not like that at all!

But I guess we should take further discussion about your licenses somewhere else, to http://www.os2world.com/cgi-bin/ultraboard/UltraBoard.cgi?action=Headlines&BID=20&SID=57252 or comp.os.os2.apps perhaps?

I've only listed the companies within that category. That that would be enought, but we can get all the names of the coder/authors that would be fine with me to update the poll with full name/s.

That's OK with me and if Bernd does not complain. Otherwise the page will perhaps be a bit overloaded...
