It has come to our attention that some 3rd party components are being distributed without clear licensing terms. We would like to inform users of those additions that they are potentially building their systems on top of code that might go away without notice, no hope of ever seeing continued development or getting any support for that code from anyone.

Whatever license the developer picks it should be clear to the user what their rights are. Contributions not labeled CLEARLY with licensing terms will no longer be accepted on these forums. Suggested licenses include MIT, BSD, LGPL, GPL etc.

Code not labeled by March 1st. 2009 will sadly have to be removed from our forums.
