I paid bounties for individual asterisk developments that I saw value in

I've heard of GPL and 'think' I understand how it works but with
Asterisk there is a corporate body policing the policy (Digium).

I guess what I'm asking is how 'organized' MythTV actually is and where
do you feel your future is heading as far as the wider general public
using the application once it is stable enough for the non geek users.

This 'argument' (discourse?) was an ongoing event at Asterisk until
Coalescent developed (and subsequently released under GPL back into the
community) their AMP gui configurator.

Just as importantly the Asterisk at home sourceforge project packaged AMP
along with 4 other applications into a single 'set and forget' iso that
made Asterisk about as simple (and accessible to the non geek community)
as it is ever going to get.

I hope that clarifies my interests.

Add http://www.eff.org to that list.

Aside from being told all this information is already in the archives,

I smell something funny.

Dean says he "funded" or was involved in asterisk, yet he's NEVER 
heard of GPL, FSF or probably EFF?  That is odd to say the least.

Oh, I'll come right out and say it.  Dean, I think you are lying 
about something.
