Ah, that discussion was here already some time before. While I can agree
with you to some extent that AltME and similar closed communities kill
public visibility, I can't agree that it takes months to get in. I think
that everybody interested in REBOL goes to rebol.com - there is support
page and there is AltME mentioned. One google search and you are at
altme.com website. One question here and you are in. I will ask Carl to
add basic rebol log-on on their support page directly ...
I can guarantee you, that ml itself is not optimal too, as it requires
you to subscribe. Nowadays ppl seem to prefer web forums ...

ah, my english - I thought that "to find out" just means what I think it
means :-) They simply somehow discovered rebol and visited RT to discuss
with them. No buyout, just a cooperation/licencing the product ....
