We are working on finishing the guidelines for how we would like the games community on java.net to be run. We hope to have something out by next week. To be a Developer, you need to have a signed Contributor Agreement on file. The Contributor Agreement can be found at: http://games-core.dev.java.net/sun_contrib_051903_javagames.pdf
well this way to agree a license does suck for me
well the BSD license itself might be ok, as well as the XFree86 license .. but this kinda extra agreement .. hmm.
as well this license, or better the way to "get in"
is an obstacle to join. any other oss project does not need such a thing, 'cause you do agree automatically with the special licenses ..
as well as this "print out", "sign" and "fax" is a big media break ;-)
wtf this thing should help anything ?
just to be sure SUN is granted the right for continue proprietary developments ? i guess so.
well - even with the simple BSD thing, they are able to continue
on a proprietary basis ! e.g. M$ does ;-)
well IMHO you should not put that many obstacles in sharing knowledge , 'cause one could see this as an unfriendly treatment.
sorry of being that much enganged in this social issues,
but they are importment for myself .. before i do engage myself into something ..
ok i will try the mailinglist from now
having a good time
