[REBOL] Re: Wikipedia

From: edoconnor::gmail 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 http://www.rebol.com/rebol3/architecture.html 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:
