To BJ: what are your thoughts on making MXM open source (hosted on sourceforge or similar)?

This has probably been discussed before, although I couldn't find it. There have been plenty of threads asking when the next version is out, and I know you're working on important behind the scenes features. (By the way. I apologise that although I'm a WIP tester I have given very little input). But I've seen many closed source projects die because the maintainer had no time to maintain it, and I worry MXM is going down that route.

Open source seems to have helped XBMP/XBMC, and even Surreal 64 has got a boost.

huh.gif It is allready totally open source... It's distributed with the binary I believe.

And it isn't dieing, the last 12 months have seen great additions to the WIP binaries smile.gif

It is open source.

However, there's no CVS tree, and source is released with a public release, so that's why WIP source is not out.

Ok, I'm a fool!

Sourceforge-style CVS open source was what I really had in mind, where it would be easy for people to contribute and collaborate, and people could compile CVS binaries and so on. But never mind.
