[REBOL] Re: Wikipedia

From: edoconnor:gma:il at: 19-Nov-2008 11:45

I don't have a definition at hand, and I'm not keen on proposing one. It shouldn't be difficult to confirm that REBOL is proprietary. For example, the R3 page states, "It should be noted that [Core runtime component] is not open source; it is a proprietary core." And R3 is intended to be a more open, collaborative model than previous releases. One question is,"Does any person or business entity own and control the REBOL language and interpreter?" I think the answer is yes-- sure, the company REBOL Technologies officially owns it, with Carl Sassenrath being its primary designer, architect, corporate officer and public spokesperson. I think its better to be transparent about this and let users decide for themselves. In my opinion, it serves public interest to characterize REBOL as proprietary-- unless you can provide evidence to the contrary. On Wed, Nov 19, 2008 at 10:22 AM, Peta wrote:
